[PATCH] rebase: move state_dir to tmp prior to deletion




From: Ben Woosley <ben.woosley@xxxxxxxxx>

To avoid partial deletion / zombie rebases.

Example behavior under partial deletion, after
Ctrl-Cing out of a standard rebase:

    $ git rebase target
    First, rewinding head to replay your work on top of it...
    Applying: [...]
    ^C
    $ git status
    rebase in progress; onto (null)
    You are currently rebasing.
      (all conflicts fixed: run "git rebase --continue")

    Changes to be committed:
      (use "git reset HEAD <file>..." to unstage)
    [...]
    $ git rebase --continue
    error: could not read '.git/rebase-apply/head-name': No such file or directory
    $ git rebase --abort
    error: could not read '.git/rebase-apply/head-name': No such file or directory
