We might do this in the arch-binfmt tool rather than at boot (and then
only if config files are found that needs it). Thoughts anyone?

/dev/shm is needed by glibc

Changing the format of /etc/fstab sounds like a bad idea to me (anyone
might read and parse /etc/fstab). There was a recent discussion about
this on the util-linux ml, where it was committed and then reverted
shortly after due to this concern.
