tmpfs is a filesystem in ram, lost after reset.
the ram of the nslu2 is 32Mbyte, meaning you can't use the full 39,6MB
without swap, and you will loose it after a reset.
you only possibility is to install java, or better, the whole system
on a disk.
look at: http://www.nslu2-linux.org/wiki/DebianSlug/OpenDebianSlug
It converts OpenSlug to OpenDebianSlug, means the nslu2 only boots the
kernel from flash and the rest resided on a hardisk/usbstick.
