Description Samuli Suominen 2011-04-25 12:27:29 UTC
localstatedir (/var/run) can be tmpfs, so udisks shouldn't create any directory to it when running `make install`.
any files on directories created on it will disappear on boot, and it's perfectly legal setup.
it should verify if the directory exists or not, and then create it on-fly instead. 

for reference how this causes problems, see:
