This won't apply any more. We very recently changed a large number of
filesystems to not call update_atime() from within their readdir functions.
That operation was hoisted up to vfs_readdir().

Also, rather than adding MNT_IS_RDONLY() and having to remember to check
both the inode and the mount all over the kernel it would be better to
change IS_RDONLY() to take two arguments - the inode and the vfsmnt. That
way we won't miss places, and unconverted code simpy won't compile, thus
drawing attention to itself. I don't know if this is feasible, but please
consider it.
