Git v1.7.10.1 Release Notes

Fixes since v1.7.10
* "git add -p" is not designed to deal with unmerged paths but did
not exclude them and tried to apply funny patches only to fail.
+ * "git blame" started missing quite a few changes from the origin
+ since we stopped using the diff minimalization by default in v1.7.2
+ era.
* When PATH contains an unreadable directory, alias expansion code
did not kick in, and failed with an error that said "git-subcmd"
was not found.

* Rename detection logic used to match two empty files as renames
during merge-recursive, leading to unnatural mismerges.
+ * The parser in "fast-import" did not diagnose ":9" style references
+ that is not followed by required SP/LF as an error.
+ * When "git fetch" encounters repositories with too many references,
+ the command line of "fetch-pack" that is run by a helper
+ e.g. remote-curl, may fail to hold all of them. Now such an
+ internal invocation can feed the references through the standard
+ input of "fetch-pack".
+ * "git fetch" that recurses into submodules on demand did not check
+ if it needs to go into submodules when non branches (most notably,
+ tags) are fetched.
+ * "log -p --graph" used with "--stat" had a few formatting error.
* Running "notes merge --commit" failed to perform correctly when run
from any directory inside $GIT_DIR/. When "notes merge" stops with
conflicts, $GIT_DIR/NOTES_MERGE_WORKTREE is the place a user edits
