mount_tmpfs(8) still exists, but kern.usermount has been removed[1] last
year and therefore cannot be called any more by a normal user.


One could use doas plus a wrapper script to make it use usable by
pass(1) or permanently mount a memory partition, but this is IMHO
usually hardly worth the effort given a specific threat model.
