If a merge command in the todo list specifies just a branch to merge
with no -C/-c argument then item->commit is NULL. This means that if
there are merge conflicts error_with_patch() is passed a NULL commit
which causes a segmentation fault when make_patch() tries to look it up.

This commit implements a minimal fix which fixes the crash and allows
the user to successfully commit a conflict resolution with 'git rebase
--continue'. It does not write .git/rebase-merge/patch,
.git/rebase-merge/stopped-sha or update REBASE_HEAD. To sensibly get the
hashes of the merge parents would require refactoring do_merge() to
extract the code that parses the merge parents into a separate function
which error_with_patch() could then use to write the parents into the
stopped-sha file. To create meaningful output make_patch() and 'git
rebase --show-current-patch' would also need to be modified to diff the
merge parent and merge base in this case.
