Free space on /dev/shm isn't excluded from being used for other purposes,
so there's no compelling reason to shrink it. However, you can still
do so by addding size=foo as a mount option, with foo in bytes.
Applications that are /dev/shm-aware usually take care of it automagically,
there's nothing to configure. However, you can get better performance out
of some applications by also mounting /tmp as a tmpfs filesystem.
