I see no other way out here because tmpfs does not support quota.
BTW. There still be a possibility to deadlock machine if you have a
not limited /tmp on tmpfs. By default tmpfs can use a half of system
memory size, so if you got a two user writable tmpfs file systems you
can try to deadlock system.
