[PATCH 1/2] t5516-fetch-push: fix 'push with dry-run' test




In a while-at-it cleanup replacing a 'cd dir && <...> && cd ..' with a
subshell, commit 28391a80a9 (receive-pack: allow deletion of corrupt
refs, 2007-11-29) also moved the assignment of the $old_commit
variable to that subshell.  This variable, however, is used outside of
that subshell as a parameter of check_push_result(), to check that a
ref still points to the commit where it is supposed to.  With the
variable remaining unset outside the subshell check_push_result()
doesn't perform that check at all.

Use 'git -C <dir> cmd...', so we don't need to change directory, and
thus don't need the subshell either when setting $old_commit.

Furthermore, change check_push_result() to require at least three
parameters (the repo, the oid, and at least one ref), so it will catch
similar issues earlier should they ever arise.
