 will give you tmpfs instance on /mytmpfs which can allocate 10GB
 RAM/SWAP in 10240 inodes and it is only accessible by root.
 
+tmpfs has the following mounting options for case-insesitive lookups support:
+
+=========   ==============================================================
+casefold    Enable casefold support at this mount point using the given
+            argument as enconding. Currently only utf8 encondings are supported.
+cf_strict   Enable strict casefolding at this mouting point (disabled by
+            default). This means that invalid strings should be reject by the
+            file system.
+=========   ==============================================================
+
+Note that this option doesn't enable casefold by default, one needs to set
+casefold flag per directory, setting the +F attribute in an empty directory. New
+directories within a casefolded one will inherit the flag.
+
+Example::
+
+    $ mount -t tmpfs -o casefold=utf8-12.1.0,cf_strict tmpfs /mytmpfs
+    $ cd /mytmpfs
+    $ touch a; touch A
+    $ ls
+    A  a
+    $ mkdir dir
+    $ chattr +F dir
+    $ touch dir/a; touch dir/A
+    $ ls dir
+    a
