opkg-make-index: use ctime instead of mtime
When using sstate, two parallel builds can produce two packages with the same mtime but different checksums. When later one of those two builds fetches the others ipk, the package index does not get udpated properly (since mtime matches). This ends up with messages such as: Downloading file:/../tmp/work/../image/...ipk. Removing corrupt package file /../sysroot/../var/cache/opkg/volatile/...ipk However, in that case, ctime is different. Use ctime instead of mtime to prevent failures like this.
