rebase: remove obsolete and unused LONG_USAGE which breaks xgettext
Since there is a modern OPTIONS_SPEC variable in use in this script, the obsolete USAGE and LONG_USAGE variables are no longer used. Remove them. In addition, the obsolete LONG_USAGE variable has the following message in it: A'\''--B'\''--C'\'' And such complex LONG_USAGE message will break xgettext when extracting l10n messages (but if single quotes are removed from the message, xgettext works fine on '').

-USAGE='[--interactive | -i] [--exec | -x <cmd>] [-v] [--force-rebase | -f]
- [--no-ff] [--onto <newbase>] [<upstream>|--root] [<branch>] [--quiet | -q]'
-LONG_USAGE='git-rebase replaces <branch> with a new branch of the
-same name. When the --onto option is provided the new branch starts
-out with a HEAD equal to <newbase>, otherwise it is equal to <upstream>
-It then attempts to create a new commit for each commit from the original
-<branch> that does not exist in the <upstream> branch.
-It is possible that a merge failure will prevent this process from being
-completely automatic. You will have to resolve any such merge failure
-and run git rebase --continue. Another option is to bypass the commit
-that caused the merge failure with git rebase --skip. To check out the
-original <branch> and remove the .git/rebase-apply working files, use the
-command git rebase --abort instead.
-Note that if <branch> is not specified on the command line, the
-currently checked out branch is used.
-Example: git-rebase master~1 topic
- A---B---C topic A'\''--B'\''--C'\'' topic
- / --> /
- D---E---F---G master D---E---F---G master
