And it's been that way for months now :)

Which is great. But don't make the mistake of thinking you can explictly
add the relatime option to / in fstab. Because mkinitrd cannot handle. :-(

You don't have to add the option.  The right thing happens when the
kernel mounts the filesystem

True, but when a *valid* option to the rootfs prevents boot, that's a very bad thing. .. I wonder what will happen if / has norelatime in fstab...
