The code is in hammer_vop_read:

         * XXX only update the atime if we had to get the MP lock.
         * XXX hack hack hack, fixme.
        if (got_fstoken) {
                if ((ip->flags & HAMMER_INODE_RO) == 0 &&
                    (ip->hmp->mp->mnt_flag & MNT_NOATIME) == 0) {
                        ip->ino_data.atime = trans.time;
                        hammer_modify_inode(&trans, ip, HAMMER_INODE_ATIME);
        return (error);

It seems that the atime is only updated sometimes. This is horribly inconsistent
behaviour. Matt needs to look at this one, too. I've not the slightest clue why
such a hackish behaviour.
