Bug#851427: sysvinit makes /dev/shm a symlink to /run/shm, should be other way round

the buster version of sysvinit initscripts still mounts the with /run/shm
as the mount point for the tmpfs and /dev/shm as a symlink.

just adding on to the discussion...the situation actually prevents running
certain flatpak applications.

modifying mount-functions.sh per the attached will reverse the situation,
although there is still some migration code in there that strictly speaking
isn't necessary.
