I mean... if you don't know about this bug and add relatime to fstab, you've just made it impossible to upgrade the kernel. And the work-around (edit fstab to remove relatime, 'yum update kernel', edit fstab to put back relatime) isn't very friendly.

relatime is supported in the stock kernel, but without the heuristic that avoids tmpreaper deleting your files at inappropriate times. It shouldn't cause failure.

As per the bug mentioned in the OP, it may be coming from around initrd and not the kernel per-se. I intend to check next time a kernel update is available.

What does tmpreaper normally reap? If it is only /tmp, then I don't care about the missing heuristic ;-).
