Dolphin (The KDE4 FM) would not receive file change notifications for /dev/shm, but for /run/shm.

So now I would like to migrate /dev/shm/ to /run/shm, but I couldn't find the corresponding part in systemd that handles it.

All I want is to simulate what Ubuntu does. Mount shm to /run/shm, and symlink it to /dev/shm.

Or was it possible with udev rules? I'm not sure if it's suitable here.
