Should remove deletion from mounted-tmp

Bug #1572351 reported by Ian Turner on 2016-04-20

mountall (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Now that systemd is cleaning /tmp (via /usr/lib/tmpfiles.d/tmp.conf), we should remove all the /tmp cleanup code from /etc/init/mounted-tmp.conf.

Leaving it in is redundant and confusing.

No, we should not. The correct solution here is to no longer have the
mountall package installed.

If mountall is no longer needed, shouldn't it be removed on upgrade? Or perhaps it should Conflict with systemd so that it is removed after migration?
