[PATCH] Make nsec checking optional

The nsec field of ctime/mtime is now checked only with -DNSEC defined during
compilation. nsec acts broken since it is stored in the icache but apparently
just gets to zero when flushed to filesystem not supporting it (e.g. ext3),
creating illusions of false changes. At least that's my impression.

# -DNSEC if you want git to care about sub-second file mtimes and ctimes.
# Note that you need some new glibc (at least >2.2.4) for this, and it will
# BREAK YOUR LOCAL DIFFS! show-diff and anything using it will likely randomly
# break unless your underlying filesystem supports those sub-second times
# (my ext3 doesn't).
