Yeah maybe it's too fragile, on the other hand it caught what seems to
be a bug under GIT_TEST_MULTI_PACK_INDEX=true, and the rest of the test
suite passes, so there's that.

It's confusing, but the reason for this seeming discrepancy is that
writing the commit-graph happens in-process, whereas the rest of the
work done by git-gc (and its output) comes from subprocesses. Most of
that output is from "git-repack" / "git-pack-objects" which doesn't pay
the same attention to --quiet and --no-quiet, instead it checks
isatty(). See cmd_pack_objects().
