What a fuss about an option. It's useful, it doesn't break anything
(unless you use it) and it is small. The question is not if it gets
in. The question is more likely to be *how* does it get in.

The only gripe about the current patch is that it uses the word:

no_atime

instead of

noatime

The latter seems to be the standard naming convention for all
other no- attributes.
