apply: reject input that touches outside the working area
By default, a patch that affects outside the working area (either a Git controlled working tree, or the current working directory when "git apply" is used as a replacement of GNU patch) is rejected as a mistake (or a mischief). Git itself does not create such a patch, unless the user bends over backwards and specifies a non-standard prefix to "git diff" and friends. When `git apply` is used as a "better GNU patch", the user can pass the `--unsafe-paths` option to override this safety check. This option has no effect when `--index` or `--cached` is in use. The new test was stolen from Jeff King with slight enhancements. Note that a few new tests for touching outside the working area by following a symbolic link are still expected to fail at this step, but will be fixed in later steps.
