It's fairly trivial though to patch in your patch collection and then do a
find . -name "*.rej" and then bring up each file and it's .rej counterpart
in your favorite split screen editor and manually examine/fix things like
this. It took a few seconds to see that one hunk of the no_atime patch
failed because it was already there.

Maybe Linus left the define in because he plans to use the flag later, but
didn't like the rest of the implementation. It didn't really matter to me
at the time.
