Add this to your fstab:

tmpfs     /tmp         tmpfs     defaults     0 0
tmpfs     /var/log     tmpfs     defaults     0 0
tmpfs     /var/tmp     tmpfs     defaults     0 0

Keep in mind that /var/log will be lost each reboot, so you'll have to
revert that if you are having some issue and want to see your logs
after reboot. I wasn't brave enough to do /var/run as well, but I
wanted to. Maybe someone else can comment on how safe that is.

I also changed my root filesystem to ext2 to avoid journal writes, and
added noatime to the options (replace "defaults" with
"defaults,noatime"), which avoids more useless writes. Be aware that
this causes me trouble with kernel updates:

We should start a wiki someplace to keep track of all this stuff.
