    fs/ext4: Make "lazytime" mount option by default
    "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.
