Would the "improved relatime" patch solve that problem?
Huh. I actually meant "shouldn't cause failure" there, in terms of it
still being a valid mount option. The improved relatime code adds that
heuristic, which avoids the tmpreaper failure. I'm trying to get it
upstream, at which point I'll backport it - I'm not enthusiastic about
carrying it around as a custom modification forever.
