[Bug 1195009] [NEW] sftp should include seconds in directory listings

Public bug reported:

Directory listings from the "ls -l" command in sftp are only granular
for mtime to the minute and not the second.  When using sftp clients
that support uploading only changed files based on mtime this causes the
same file to appear different.

sftp should provide the complete timestamp and not just hh:mm.

[rbeede at ubuntu:/home/rbeede] $ ssh -V
OpenSSH_6.1p1 Debian-4, OpenSSL 1.0.1c 10 May 2012

[rbeede at ubuntu:/home/rbeede] $ uname -a
Linux ubuntu 3.8.0-19-generic #30-Ubuntu SMP Wed May 1 16:35:23 UTC 2013 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

This may belong to openssh-server or openssh-client.
