no, more like
mount -t ramfs ramfs /tmp
cp -a /etc/* /tmp
umount /tmp
mount -t ramfs ramfs /etc

but I see what's the problem, I don't know but I think that ramfs is destroyed
after umounting? with ramdisks, it's somethink like this:

dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/ramx bs=1k count=yyy
mke2fs -vm0 -i 1024 /dev/ramx yyy
mount -n -t ext2 /dev/ramx /tmp
cp -a /etc/* /tmp
umount /tmp
mount -n -t ext2 /dev/ramx /tmp

If ramfs is destroyed after umounting, then ramfs is unusable for overmounting.
But is then ramfs that what we want?

So long
