System V shared memory is now implemented via a filesystem. You do not
have to mount it to use it as long as you can live with the default maxima
for shared memory and segments. If you wish to change these variables,
you have to mount it with the options nr_blocks and/or nr_inodes.
If you want to use POSIX shm, then it needs to be mounted somewhere.
The recommended place is /dev/shm and this can be done by adding the
following line to /etc/fstab:
shm /dev/shm shm defaults 0 0
Remember to create the directory that you intend to mount shm on.
