[PATCH 5/7] get_commit_tree(): return NULL for broken tree

From: Jeff King <peff@xxxxxxxx>

Return NULL from 'get_commit_tree()' when a commit's root tree is
corrupt, doesn't exist, or points to an object which is not a tree.

In [1], this situation became a BUG(), but it can certainly occur in
cases which are not a bug in Git, for e.g., if a caller manually crafts
a commit whose tree is corrupt in any of the above ways.

Note that the expect_failure test in t6102 triggers this BUG(), but we
can't flip it to expect_success yet. Solving this problem actually
reveals a second bug.
