T430: The Need For Speed

Made a few changes on the T430.
Setting up things to make the little lappie fly, now that the new kernel has finally taken charge of those awful hangs.
Right now the /etc/fstab file is like this:

proc            /proc           proc    nodev,noexec,nosuid 0       0
UUID=e9ee5c6a-b32d-45ef-b947-95e96686cc88       /     ext4    relatime,discard,errors=remount-ro  0    1
tmpfs                                           /tmp  tmpfs   defaults,noatime,mode=1777   0    0
/dev/mapper/cryptswap1 none swap sw 0 0

And also, I've moved Chromium's cache to RAM, to really speed stuff, and limit the writes to the SSD HDD.
On the /etc/rc.local file:

mkdir /tmp/chrome_cache
chmod -R 777 /tmp/chrome_cache/

And on the ~/.cache/chromium/Default directory, a link from the directory Cache to new one on /tmp/chrome_cache/.

Also on the /etc/rc.local file:

echo noop > /sys/block/sda/queue/scheduler

That's it.
