tmpfs and noatime heads up

I added the noatime option to my fstab where the tempfs entries were....

FreeBSD didn't like it and dropped me out to single user mode upon
reboot with the appropriate warning of "invalid mount option".

I removed the noatime flags for my tempfs entries, rebooted, and all
came back up as it should be.

No harm done.....Just an FYI that the tmpfs (at least on my system)
doesn't support the noatime flag.... FYI!

Sincerely and respectfully,
