am, rebase: teach quiet option
git-am and git-rebase are talkative scripts. Teach them to be quiet when told, allowing them to speak only when they fail or experience errors. The quiet option is maintained when git-am or git-rebase fails to apply a patch. This means subsequent --resolved, --continue, --skip, --abort invocations will be quiet if the original invocation was quiet. Drop a handful of >&2 redirection; the rest of the program sends all the info messages to stdout, not to stderr. Signed-off-by: Stephen Boyd <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
