Subject: /tmp fs type


While we have an option to setup /tmp as tmpfs, we probably should
support bind mounts for /tmp (and /home?) to deny creating links to sxid

root@...atros:/tmp # ls /bin/ping -li
6223708 -rwx--s--x 1 root _icmp 34336 Mar 28 13:44 /bin/ping
root@...atros:/tmp # ln /bin/ping .
root@...atros:/tmp # ls -li ping 
6223708 -rwx--s--x 2 root _icmp 34336 Mar 28 13:44 ping
root@...atros:/tmp # rm ping 
root@...atros:/tmp # cd ..
root@...atros:/ # mount --bind /tmp /tmp
root@...atros:/ # ln /bin/ping /tmp
ln: creating hard link `/tmp/ping' to `/bin/ping': Invalid cross-device link
