So strictly speaking, this is a non-backward-compatible change, yes?

Please describe the circumstances under which an existing user might be
harmed by this. I *think* such harm will occur if the user was already
using 'mount -o relatime', yes? They previously weren't getting
relatime treatment, but now they will, and things will be a little slower.

If correct, that sounds acceptable.
