[Samba] smbmount ignores noatime

When mounting a Windows share within Linux the noatime option seems to
be ignored. I use the following command
mount -tsmbfs -ousername=user,noatime // /mnt/tmp

Each cat /mnt/tmp/testfile updates the last access time regardless if
noatime specified or not.

I'm running smbmount v2.0.7 on a old Suse production system, but I could
reproduce the same behaviour with a current Ubuntu system using
mount.cifs. So I assume I'm doing something wrong?! Any help in this
matter would be highly appreciated...
