I didn't see that. I saw when you objected to me fixing the bug many
years ago :-). The atime update was too slow for executables on nfs
filesystems. I only used it to reduce the number of non-conformances
found by the NIST Posix test suite. There is now a PR about this bug
(kern/25777) with a very broken patch in it (it assume that all
filesystems are ufs and hacks on ufs's IN_ACCESS flag).
