Subject: e4defrag modifies folder's mtime.

I ran e4defrag from e2fsprogs-1.42 on a file system and a lot of folders 
had their mtime updated as a result. This confuses both my backup 
program and myself. I guess the folder timestamps change because the 
temporary donor file is created in the same directory as the original 
file. XFS's defrag program put the donor files in a temporary folder in 
the root of the file system. Maybe e4defrag could do the same.
