Subject: [PATCH 3/4] Allow SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH to override file timestamps

Limit the maximum date to SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH or use origtime if not defined
similar to the tar --clamp-mtime option

based on a patch by Nicolas Vigier <boklm at torproject.org>

(cherry picked from commit 8d84878ee05b2e63858af3a5a49d98e9e2933b1b)
