[PATCH 2/2] bisect--helper: verify HEAD could be parsed before continuing




From: Johannes Schindelin <johannes.schindelin@xxxxxx>

In 06f5608c14e6 (bisect--helper: `bisect_start` shell function partially
in C, 2019-01-02), we introduced a call to `get_oid()` and did not check
whether it succeeded before using its output.
