There is an interesting comment by Alan Cox:
"...

...
Ext3 currently is a standards compliant file system. Turn off atime and its
very non standards compliant, turn to relatime and its not standards compliant
but nobody will break (which is good)
..."

I assume he was talking POSIX ? Standards (file systems) test suites ?
Btw, is that comment still valid, and also for ext4 ?
Is braking standards good ? :-)
