Cool, this is something I've wanted a few times.  Thanks for
submitting.  A few minor issues:
  1. Could you start sentences with capitals?  Thus, 'Use syntax...',
'Infer arguments...', 'In all cases...', etc.
  2. Missing Signed-off-by on this commit (and commit 2); I notice you
correctly added it to commit 3.

Also, additional issues below...

Do you have diff.noprefix set?  It took me a little bit to realize
that this was the reason your patches weren't applying for me.

This will fail to compile under 'make DEVELOPER=1' (ISO C90 forbids
mixed declarations and code).

Also, I was going to ask if this code should be put into a utility
function or something, but it isn't taken verbatim from checkout.c,
just adopted from there.

Any reason you moved the i = 0 to the line before?  I thought 'i' was
uninitialized and almost commented to that effect before I noticed
where it was.
