Another idea, similar to how atime updates work in xfs currently might
be interesting: Always update atime in core, but don't start a
transaction just for it - instead only flush it when you'd do it anyway,
that is another transaction or evicting the inode.

this is sort of having a "dirty" and "dirty atime" split for the inode I suppose..
shouldn't be impossible to do with a bit of vfs support..
