[PATCH] doc/rebase: extend examples to show continuing branches

Currently, all of the examples for "man git-rebase" show rebasing from
a branch that has had no further development, which might mislead
readers into thinking that that is a necessary condition for rebasing,
so tweak the examples to show further development on such a branch to
clarify that.
