[PATCH 26/30] merge-recursive: When comparing files, don't include trees

get_renames() would look up stage data that already existed (populated
in get_unmerged(), taken from whatever unpack_trees() created), and if
it didn't exist, would call insert_stage_data() to create the necessary
entry for the given file.  The insert_stage_data() fallback becomes
much more important for directory rename detection, because that creates
a mechanism to have a file in the resulting merge that didn't exist on
either side of history.  However, insert_stage_data(), due to calling
get_tree_entry() loaded up trees as readily as files.  We aren't
interested in comparing trees to files; the D/F conflict handling is
done elsewhere.  This code is just concerned with what entries existed
for a given path on the different sides of the merge, so create a
get_tree_entry_if_blob() helper function and use it.
