[PATCH v4] merge: refuse --commit with --squash




From: Vishal Verma <vishal@xxxxxxxxxx>

Convert option_commit to tristate, representing the states of
'default/untouched', 'enabled-by-cli', 'disabled-by-cli'. With this in
place, check whether option_commit was enabled by cli when squashing a
merge. If so, error out, as this is not supported.

Previously, when --squash was supplied, 'option_commit' was silently
dropped. This could have been surprising to a user who tried to override
the no-commit behavior of squash using --commit explicitly.

Add a note to the --squash option for git-merge to clarify the
incompatibility, and add a test case to t7600-merge.sh

v4:
 - Change subject line to "merge: ". Also reword it slightly (Johannes)
 - Rework the logic slightly to group the deaths together (Rafael)
