Racy GIT

This fixes the longstanding "Racy GIT" problem, which was pretty
much there from the beginning of time, but was first
demonstrated by Pasky in this message on October 24, 2005:

    http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=git&m=113014629716878

If you run the following sequence of commands:

echo frotz >infocom
        git update-index --add infocom
        echo xyzzy >infocom

so that the second update to file "infocom" does not change
st_mtime, what is recorded as the stat information for the cache
entry "infocom" exactly matches what is on the filesystem
(owner, group, inum, mtime, ctime, mode, length).  After this
sequence, we incorrectly think "infocom" file still has string
"frotz" in it, and get really confused.  E.g. git-diff-files
would say there is no change, git-update-index --refresh would
not even look at the filesystem to correct the situation.

Some ways of working around this issue were already suggested by
Linus in the same thread on the same day, including waiting
until the next second before returning from update-index if a
cache entry written out has the current timestamp, but that
means we can make at most one commit per second, and given that
the e-mail patch workflow used by Linus needs to process at
least 5 commits per second, it is not an acceptable solution.
Linus notes that git-apply is primarily used to update the index
while processing e-mailed patches, which is true, and
git-apply's up-to-date check is fooled by the same problem but
luckily in the other direction, so it is not really a big issue,
but still it is disturbing.

The function ce_match_stat() is called to bypass the comparison
against filesystem data when the stat data recorded in the cache
entry matches what stat() returns from the filesystem.  This
patch tackles the problem by changing it to actually go to the
filesystem data for cache entries that have the same mtime as
the index file itself.  This works as long as the index file and
working tree files are on the filesystems that share the same
monotonic clock.  Files on network mounted filesystems sometimes
get skewed timestamps compared to "date" output, but as long as
working tree files' timestamps are skewed the same way as the
index file's, this approach still works.  The only problematic
files are the ones that have the same timestamp as the index
file's, because two file updates that sandwitch the index file
update must happen within the same second to trigger the
problem.

Remove misguided branch disambiguation.

This removes the misguided attempt to refuse processing a branch
name xyzzy and insist it to be given as either heads/xyzzy or
tags/xyzzy when a tag xyzzy exists.  There was no reason to do
so --- the search order was predictable and well defined, so if
the user says xyzzy we should have taken the tag xyzzy in such a
case without complaining.

This incidentally fixes another subtle bug related to this.  If
such a duplicate branch/tag name happened to be a unique valid
prefix of an existing commit object name (say, "beef"), we did
not take the tag "beef" but after complaining used the commit
object whose name started with beef.

Another problem this fixes while introducing some confusion is
that there is no longer a reason to forbid a branch name HEAD
anymore.  In other words, now "git pull . ref1:HEAD" would work
as expected, once we revert "We do not like HEAD branch" patch.
It creates "HEAD" branch under ${GIT_DIR-.git}/refs/heads (or
fast-forwards if already exists) using the tip of ref1 branch
from the current repository, and merges it into the current
branch.

git-am support for naked email messages (take 2)

This allows git-am to accept single-message files as well as mboxes.
Unlike the previous version, this one doesn't need to be explicitly told
which one it is; rather, it looks to see if the first line is a From
line and uses it to select mbox mode or not.

I moved the logic to do all this into git-mailsplit, which got a new
user interface as result, although the old interface is still available
for backwards compatibility.

[jc: applied with two obvious fixes.]

[PATCH] allow merging any committish

Although "git-merge" is advertised as the end-user level command
(instead of being a "git-pull" backend), it was not prepared to
take tag objects that point at commits and barfed when fed one.

15 years agogit-clone: tell the user a bit more about clone-pack failure.

git-clone: tell the user a bit more about clone-pack failure.

When clone-pack has trouble with the remote, it dies unfriendly
"EOF" error message.  We cannot tell the reason why it failed
from the local end; it could be that the repository did not
exist, or configured not to serve over git-daemon, or a network
failure.  At least, saying clone-pack failed makes it a bit more
meaningful.

I am not convinced yet that removing the newly created directory
is the right thing to do, so this commit leaves the new
directory behind.

Documentation: not learning core git commands.

The initial section of tutorial was too heavy on internal
workings for the first-time readers, so rewrite the introductory
section of git(7) to start with "not learning core git commands"
section and refer them to README to grasp the basic concepts,
then Everyday to give overview with task/role oriented examples
for minimum set of commands, and finally the tutorial.

Also add to existing note in the tutorial that many too
technical descriptions can be skipped by a casual reader.

I initially started to review the tutorial, with the objective
of ripping out the detailed technical information altogether,
but I found that the level of details in the initial couple of
sections that talk about refs and the object database in a
hands-on fashion was about rigth, and left all of them there.  I
feel that reading about fsck-index and repack is too abstract
without being aware of these directories and files.
