record: move copystat() hack out of util.copyfile() and into record

b2410ed2cbe9 updated copyfile to also copy over atimes and
mtimes. That behavior is specifically to trick editors into thinking
files that hg record has modified haven't changed. We don't really
care about preserving times in the general case.
