Test for a regression in copy up of symlink that has the S_NOATIME
inode flag.

This is a regression from v5.15 reported by Ruiwen Zhao:

In the bug report, the symlink has the S_NOATIME inode flag because it is
on an NFS/FUSE filesystem that sets S_NOATIME for all inodes.

The reproducer uses another technique to create a symlink with
S_NOATIME inode flag by using chattr +A inheritance on filesystems
that inherit chattr flags to symlinks.
