[PATCH 1/3] sha1-file: test the error behavior of alt_odb_usable()

Add a test for the error() case in alt_odb_usable() where an alternate
directory doesn't exist. This behavior has been the same since
26125f6b9b ("detect broken alternates.", 2006-02-22), but if that
error() was turned into die() the entire test suite would still pass.

Perhaps we should die() in that case, but let's start by adding a test
here to assert the long-standing existing behavior.
