SubjectMounting with option "nodiratime" and "noatime"
I have just finished upgrading to mount-2.8-4 and am using the
mount options "noatime" and "nodiratime" on the following
partitions:

/dev/hda5 / ext2 defaults 1 1
/dev/hda7 /home ext2 noatime,nodiratime 1 2
/dev/hda2 /stuff ext2 noatime,nodiratime 1 2
/dev/hda9 /usr ext2 noatime,nodiratime 1 2
/dev/hda8 /usr/local ext2 noatime,nodiratime 1 2


What possible things could break with this configuration? What
actually USES the ATIME date stamp on files and directories? I
don't use any backup software or anything like that. I'm just
curious as to wether I can expect weird behaviour from any
programs now or not?

Is it safe to do noatime and nodiratime on "/" as well?

Assuming nothing major breaks, are there any other wierdnesses I
should be aware of?
