[PATCH 01/19] git-checkout.txt: fix one syntax line




<branch> can be omitted in this syntax, and it's actually documented a
few paragraphs down:

  You could omit <branch>, in which case the command degenerates to
  "check out the current branch", which is a glorified no-op with
  rather expensive side-effects to show only the tracking information,
  if exists, for the current branch.
