Access timestamps

Access timestamps

Parent article: Unioning file systems: Architecture, features, and design choices

I'd just add to the section on timestamps that implementing access timestamps is more costly for some approaches than others, and some union filesystems choose not to implement atime for files that haven't been copied up to a writable filesystem.

(Exceptionally good article, btw.)

You're right, I somehow managed to forget to talk about atime. Thanks for pointing that out!
