[PATCH v4 33/34] merge-recursive: avoid spurious rename/rename conflict from dir renames




If a file on one side of history was renamed, and merely modified on the
other side, then applying a directory rename to the modified side gives us
a rename/rename(1to2) conflict.  We should only apply directory renames to
pairs representing either adds or renames.

Making this change means that a directory rename testcase that was
previously reported as a rename/delete conflict will now be reported as a
modify/delete conflict.
