This fixes too strong index requirement 3-way merge enforces in

In this case, the original code insisted that if the index file

However in this particular case, it only has to match it, and
can be dirty.  We just need to make sure that we keep the
work-tree copy instead of checking out the merge result.

The resolution of such a path, however, cannot be left to
outside script, because we will not keep the original stage0
entries for unmerged paths when read-tree finishes, and at that
point, the knowledge of "if we resolve it to match the new file
added in both branches, the merge succeeds and the work tree
would not lose information, but we should _not_ update the work
tree from the resulting index file" is lost.  For this reason,
the now code needs to resolve this case (#5ALT) internally.

This affects some existing tests in the test suite, but all in
positive ways.  In t1000 (3-way test), this #5ALT case now gets
one stage0 entry, instead of an identical stage2 and stage3
entry pair, for such a path, and one test that checked for merge
failure (because the test assumed the "stricter-than-necessary"
behaviour) does not have to fail anymore.  In t1005 (emu23

NOTE NOTE NOTE! Do _not_ use "git commit" to commit such
a merge. It won't set the parents right. I'll need to fix

[PATCH] three --merge-order bug fixes

This patch fixes three bugs in --merge-order support
    * mark_ancestors_uninteresting was unnecessarily exponential which
      caused a problem when a commit with no parents was merged near the
      head of something like the linux kernel
    * removed a spurious statement from find_base which wasn't
      apparently causing problems now, but wasn't correct either.
    * removed an unnecessarily strict check from find_base_for_list
      that causes a problem if git-rev-list commit ^parent-of-commit
      is specified.
    * added some unit tests which were accidentally omitted from
      original merge-order patch

The fix to mark_ancestors_uninteresting isn't an optimal fix - a full
graph scan will still be performed in this case even though it is
not strictly required. However, a full graph scan is linear
and still no worse than git-rev-list HEAD which runs in less than 2
seconds on a warm cache.
