I suddenly have need for this patch, but it seems that it never got
rolled in.  Unfortunately it doesn't apply anymore.

I'd to revamp it for current TORQUE with one minor change:  as written,
only MS will make the tmpdir, instead I'd like it to check if the
filesystem is local or remote.  If it is remote, then only MS will make
it, if it is local, all MOMs will make it.

"remote" will be defined as any filesystem with a ":" in the name and
the hostname isn't the local hostname, or the fstype is "smbfs", the
device starts with "//", and the hostname portion isn't the local

Does that sound reasonable to everyone?
