Bug #2056: HAMMER does not update file access time after read
Author: John Marino
Assignee: Matthew Dillon
During the development of the upgrade of grep to version 2.7, it was observed
that the HAVE_WORKING_O_NOATIME value was defined as 0 for the i386 platform and
1 for the x86_64 platform. The i386 platform filesystem was UFS and the other
was configured with Hammer.
The grep configuration script uses standard gnu tests. The one used to derive
the O_NOATIME value is located at
After some testing, swildner confirmed that Hammer doesn't update the file
access time after data (more than 0 bytes) is read from a file. He believes
that this behavior is not simply a convention, but covered by a standard. Since
Hammer isn't exhibiting the expected behavior, it should be considered a bug.
Moreover, every gnu configure script that is run on a system with Hammer will
produce the wrong value for O_NOATIME support, and thus may cause unexpected
behavior when the software compiles.
