    tmpfs - Correct some timestamp update issues
    * write() was updating ACCESSED and MODIFIED when it should only
      be updating MODIFIED.
    * unlink() (aka rm) was updating CHANGE, ACCESSED, and MODIFIED
      which would be visible if a file has multiple links.  It should
      only update the CHANGE time.
    * rmdir() was doing the same thing as UNLINKED.  Fixed this too,
      but the bug would not be readily visible anyway since directories
      cannot be hardlinked.  However, fstat() on an open descriptor
      would still reveal it.
