There's no atime in AFS.

You have to have an appropriate key to be able to do anything not granted to
anonymous with the server. If the server says your key (or lack thereof) is
allowed to do something, you can do it; if it does not, you can't.

No atime. I just ignore things like O_NOATIME. You will be able to query the
filesystem with fsinfo() hopefully soon to find out if there is an atime and
if you can disable it.
