[PATCH v2 1/1] rebase --stat: fix when rebasing to an unrelated history




From: Johannes Schindelin <johannes.schindelin@xxxxxx>

When rebasing to a commit history that has no common commits with the
current branch, there is no merge base. In diffstat mode, this means
that we cannot compare to the merge base, but we have to compare to the
empty tree instead.

Also, if running in verbose diffstat mode, we should not output

	Changes from <merge-base> to <onto>

as that does not make sense without any merge base.

Note: neither scripted nor built-in versoin of `git rebase` were
prepared for this situation well. We use this opportunity not only to
fix the bug(s), but also to make both versions' output consistent in
this instance. And add a regression test to keep this working in all
eternity.
