[PATCH v3 0/1] Make abspath() aware of case-insensitive filesystems

It is completely legitimate these days to call git add with absolute paths.
Of course, on a case-insensitive file system, users rightfully expect the
argument to be handled case-insensitively, too. This patch makes it so.

Git for Windows carried this patch for over one and a half years already, I
think it is time to get it into git.git.

Change since v2:

 * Replaced MINGW prerequisite in the test by CASE_INSENSITIVE_FS. v1 was
   sent out without a change by mistake. Sorry.
