[PATCH 0/2] Address recovery failures with directory/file conflicts

Several "recovery" commands outright fail or do not fully recover
when directory-file conflicts are present.  This includes:
   * git read-tree --reset HEAD
   * git am --skip
   * git am --abort
   * git merge --abort (or git reset --merge)
   * git reset --hard

It turns out that multiple invocations of 'git reset --hard' can serve as
a functional workaround, but I've been annoyed with that workaround for
years.  This time, I found the problem, and this patch series provides a
fix for all of these.
