I like to remove this hack in 2.3 - it requires too much admin work and
thus it is easier to simply create /run/user, for example in rc.local:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
[ ! -d /run/user ] && mkdir /run/user
awk -F: </etc/passwd '$3 >= 1000 && $3 < 65000 {print $3}' \
  | ( while read uid rest; do
        if [ ! -d "/run/user/$uid" ]; then
	  mkdir /run/user/$uid
	  chown $uid /run/user/$uid
	  chmod 700 /run/user/$uid
      done )
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

BTW, the use of /tmp is just fine as long as you create a sub directory.
This is how X has always worked.  In fact, the test suite does just

Note also that the socket file system problem exists on many NFS or
Samba mounted home directories.  Not just on FAT file systems.
