[RFC PATCH v3 1/4] branch: improve documentation and naming of 'create_branch()'




From: Kaartic Sivaraam <kaarticsivaraam91196@xxxxxxxxx>

The documentation for 'create_branch()' was incomplete as it didn't say
what certain parameters were used for. Further a parameter name wasn't
very communicative.

So, add missing documentation for the sake of completeness and easy
reference. Also, rename the concerned parameter to make its name more
communicative.
