Follow-up Comment #2, bug #51069 (project findutils):

Linux has an extension open(O_NOATIME) that allows one to pick-and-choose when
to NOT adjust the atime of a directory, without being as heavy-handed as a
mount option for all operations on the entire tree.  As an extension to POSIX,
we could offer an option to find to turn on noatime mode.  But it would first
need support in gnulib's fts code.  Several other GNU utilities (like
coreutils' du and friends) could also benefit from exposing such an option, on
operating systems where it is feasible.
