"lazytime" mount option significantly decreases the number of metadata
updates thus decreasing amount of random i/o.

We definitely want this option to be enabled for all ploop mounts as
well as for filesystems underlying under ploop images (e.g. /vz).

So the only filesystems which we don't care "lazytime" presense are
"/", "/boot", etc.

But even for them the option should not hurt, so let's just enable
the option by default for all ext4 mounts.

To disable "lazytime" option use "-o nolazytime" mount option.
