[PATCH v5 15/22] read-cache: touch shared index files when used




When a split-index file is created, let's update the mtime of the
shared index file that the split-index file is referencing.

In a following commit we will make shared index file expire
depending on their mtime, so updating the mtime makes sure that
the shared index file will not be deleted soon.
