Now we mount /dev as tmpfs and haven't created directory
/dev/shm,so the glibc api such as shm_open/sem_open will
create files under dir /dev.(since /dev is mounted as tmpfs)

Through these api still useable in container,but this cause
directory /dev looks a little chaos.

This patch create directory /dev/shm automatically,the files
created by shm_open/sem_open will stay in this directroy.

I we probably want to mount a separate tmpfs on /dev/shm really, so we can
do resource limits on /dev and /dev/shm separately.

I agree.
BTW, if the user wants to tune limit of /dev/shm size, he need to add

<filesystem type='ram'>
  <source usage='XXXXX'/>
  <target dir='/dev/shm'/>


How do you think suitable limit for default should be ?
half of memory limit of a container ?
