Windows: fix utime() for read-only files

Starting with 5256b00 (Use git_mkstemp_mode instead of plain mkstemp to
create object files, 2010-02-22) utime() is invoked on read-only files.
This is not allowed on Windows and results in many warnings of the form

failed utime() on .git/objects/23/tmp_obj_VlgHlc: Permission denied

during a repack. Fix it by making the file temporarily writable.

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
