    A 1K tmpfs would contain, at most, /one/ filesystem block.
    That's not enough space to host a filesystem in; you wouldn't even have enough
    space for the filesystem superblock, let alone the zone bitmap or the root
    directory file.

    My guess is that you can't allocate a tmpfs ramdisk smaller than the smallest
    usable ext2 filesystem size.
