Hi Zbyszek,

It was my intention to do it at runtime, however I couldn't figure out
when it is the right time to do it. I wanted to do it once, and not to
check for this directory everytime we are spawning a new process which
needs it. Do you have any idea, when is the right time to do it, such
that it will work for all scenarios (with dracut, in containers,
etc...) ?

Do you prefer to have it /run or in /tmp?
