I took a look and it seems like bumping atime on a execve or mmap was
never done. The other BSDs and Linux _do_. I took a shot at a patch.
It is based on FBSD.
The patch against HEAD is at:
I wasn't sure if the atime update in mmap should happen further below
or not. Also, not sure if I had to mess with vnode locking in
kern_exec -- please let me know.
Ah, and I just thought that maybe our stat(2) man page should be
updated to add execve and mmap in the atime blurb.
