[PATCH v3 0/2] allow checkout and branch to create branches on a merge base




Thanks again for the review, Junio.

I've squashed 2/3 and 3/3 together and made that documentation change I
was talking about earlier.

---

Changes since v2:

* Squashed 2/3 with 3/3
* Document merge base syntax for <start_point> in git-checkout.txt

Changes since v1:

* Moved multiple `test_when_finished` calls that appeared in "reverse
  order" into one call that appears in the logical order
* Made create_branch handle merge base revs instead of putting a hack
  into checkout
