Not sure about the error, but in general RAMFS sounds like a bad idea
for a number of reasons including the ability to crash your machine if
it fills up, and the loss of messages if you lose power or have a
hardware failure. The server should use free RAM for cache anyway, so
I'm not sure how much of a performance improvement you'll see.
OTOH, the benchmark data would be interesting.
Also, you might want to check and see where the problem actually is,
since I'd be amazed if postfix is actually disk-bound. It's more likely
to be another process or something with log-level set too high. If it
turns out to be logging and you can't reduce the log data, you could try
moving syslog to a difference machine.
