builtin/describe: introduce --broken flag
git-describe tells you the version number you're at, or errors out, e.g. when you run it outside of a repository, which may happen when downloading a tar ball instead of using git to obtain the source code. To keep this property of only erroring out, when not in a repository, severe (submodule) errors must be downgraded to reporting them gently instead of having git-describe error out completely. To achieve that a flag '--broken' is introduced, which is in the same vein as '--dirty' but uses an actual child process to check for dirtiness. When that child dies unexpectedly, we'll append '-broken' instead of '-dirty'. Signed-off-by: Stefan Beller <sbeller@google.com> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <gitster@pobox.com>

+ Describe the state of the working tree. When the working
