For ce_compare_data (and other O_RDONLY users), I guess
git_open_noatime is fine; and probably preferable because of
O_NOATIME.

We probably should be using O_NOATIME for all O_RDONLY cases
to get the last bit of performance out (especially since
non-modern-Linux systems probably still lack relatime).

However, create_tempfile needs O_RDWR|O_CREAT|O_EXCL
but I guess we can clean that up in another series.
