Correct permissions on /var/tmp

/var/tmp is the default Solaris swap mount. If you notice it has an extra t in its permissions:

$ ls -ld /var/tmp
drwxrwxrwt 16 root sys 8192 Jul 17 17:54 /var/tmp

If you ever see /var/tmp without this t

drwxrwxrw 16 root sys 8192 Jul 17 17:54 /var/tmp

These are the permissions and ownership /var/tmp should have:

sudo chown root:root /var/tmp
sudo chmod 1777 /var/tmp
