Re: noatime mounts inhibiting atime updates via utime()

We occasionally use them to find out (or have a first guess at):
-- has anyone used libfoobar last year?
-- who uses kbaz, i.e. has /home/xyz/.config/kbaz.conf been accessed?

We use snapshots to run backups, so atimes are not touched by them.
