[PATCHv2 2/2] rerere: avoid buffer overrun




check_one_conflict() compares `i` to `active_nr` in two places to avoid
buffer overruns, but left out an important third location.

The code did used to have a check here comparing i to active_nr, back
before commit fb70a06da2f1 ("rerere: fix an off-by-one non-bug",
2015-06-28), however the code at the time used an 'if' rather than a
'while' meaning back then that this loop could not have read past the
end of the array, making the check unnecessary and it was removed.
Unfortunately, in commit 5eda906b2873 ("rerere: handle conflicts with
multiple stage #1 entries", 2015-07-24), the 'if' was changed to a
'while' and the check comparing i and active_nr was not re-instated,
leading to this problem.
