[Resolvconf-devel] Question about implementation

I was interested in implementing something for local use similar to what you
do with the /etc/resolvconf/run symlink linking
to /dev/shm/resolvconf. /dev/shm is volatile, though, isn't it? I can't
quite find where /dev/shm/resolvconf is set up upon a system startup. I
don't think it's done in /etc/init.d/resolvconf because of the following
expression in line 56:
RUN_CANONICALDIR="$(readlink -f "$RUN_DIR")"
Because of the -f switch, a broken run symlink would elicit an empty string
from readlink, which would cause /etc/init.d/resolvconf to exit out with an
Hopefully I've set up my question now. If /dev/shm is volatile, where/when
is /dev/shm/resolvconf set up?
I'll continue digging through your package, but I thought maybe you guys might
be able to save me some time.
