modifying a mmap()-ed file does not update its timestamps
The following is based on a review of the illumos code and on a similar problem reported for FreeBSD where the relevant code is different.
Looking at this block of code http://src.illumos.org/source/xref/illumos-gate/usr/src/uts/common/fs/zfs/zfs_vnops.c#4187 I see code to set up an sa_bulk_attr_t object, I see code to set up mtime and ctime values, but I do not see code to actually apply the attributes...
I would expect there to be a call to sa_bulk_update(), there is such a call in zfs_write() for instance.

A simple demonstration program is attached.
$ cc mmap_write.c -o mmap_write $ ./mmap_write tttttt press enter to update the file, 'q' to exit mtime = 1447249875 mtime = 1447249875 mtime = 1447249875 mtime = 1447249875 q
