I think this merge message needs a slight tweak with this v2; we don't
document the failing now, but instead just fix it. :) Maybe:

	"git fsck --connectivity-only" omits computation necessary to sift
	the objects that are not reachable from any of the refs into
	unreachable and dangling.  This is now enabled when dangling
	objects are requested (which is done by default, but can be
	overridden with the "--no-dangling" option).
