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.
