I haven't bothered because I have no clue what you'll accept and I
fully accept you to move the goalposts.
For example, I build firefox in /tmp which is on tmpfs for me because
on mostly finished trees the make is about 40% faster than with it on
the disk. (51 seconds vs 72 seconds.
Can you not use a custom tmpfs (eg. mounted on /var/lib/mock) for
your specialist need?
