[PATCH] s3: Report ctime as change time, not mtime

I am working on a patch to store the ctime with the
gpfs_set_times() call. While testing setting and storing
timestamps i discovered that querying the timestamps from a cifs
client does not return all four timestamps. It seems that the
mtime is reported for two timestamps and the ctime is being

E.g. in smbd_do_qfilepathinfo():
        mtime_ts = psbuf->st_ex_mtime;
        ctime_ts = get_change_timespec(conn, fsp, smb_fname);
and get_change_timespec also returns the mtime.

The attached patch changes get_change_timespec to return the
ctime, so that all timestamps set through the vfs set_times call can
be queried through the vfs stat calls.
