    manually touch atime when reading a mbox file · 489a1c39

    The only common use of atime left is local mail agents leaving a mark on
    mbox file after the mail has been read.  And, since POSIX-2008, it is
    possible to use futimens() to alter atime even on filesystems mounted with
    noatime.
    
    There's no extra cost for doing this on when atime updates are enabled:
    the inode will be dirty already.
