Bug#774069: debootstrap: please use a deterministic mtime for devices.tar members

Control: tag -1 pending

> Hi!
> While working on the “reproducible builds” effort [1], we have noticed
> that debootstrap could not be built reproducibly.
> The current build process captures the build time when devices.tar.gz is
> created. The attached patch will use the time of the latest
> debian/changelog entry as the mtime for devices.tar members, and remove
> the timestamp from the gzip header of devices.tar.gz.
> debootstrap can then be built reproducibly within our current
> framework.

Thanks! Pushed to git master.
