[Buildroot] support/download/wrapper expects file output in temp directory but support/wrapper/git produces output.gz

Running support/download/wrapper git fails because the final instruction 
of support/download/git gzips the output file creating output.gz which 
wrapper isn't expecting.

Build root pulled from git://git.busybox.net/buildroot master today 

I assume the fix would be to either
i) in wrapper cat output.gz in the case of git
ii) copy output.gz to output after the gzip in support/download/git
