GIT v1.5.0 preview

This is not yet -rc1 where all new topics close, but I think it
is getting pretty closer. I'd still want to merge updates to
fsck/prune to honor reflog entries before -rc1.

I think there are quite a lot of documentation updates remaining
after that. There is no patch for "fixed HEAD" yet, and while I
would not object people to try to get it working in time, it is
purely a feature enhancement and does not have backward
compatibility issues, so it does not have to block v1.5.0; it
can wait for later releases. So is sliding mmap().

* The 'master' branch has these since the last announcement.

Alexandre Julliard (1):
vc-git: Ignore errors caused by a non-existent directory
