Don't truncate valid cachefiles
An embarrassing thinko in cgit_check_cache() would truncate valid cachefiles in the following situation: 1) process A notices a missing/expired cachefile 2) process B gets scheduled, locks, fills and unlocks the cachefile 3) process A gets scheduled, locks the cachefile, notices that the cachefile now exist/is not expired anymore, and continues to overwrite it with an empty lockfile. Thanks to Linus for noticing (again). Signed-off-by: Lars Hjemli <hjemli@gmail.com>
