git-rerere: add 'gc' command.
Over time, unresolved rr-cache entries are accumulated and they tend to get less and less likely to be useful as the tips of branches advance. Reorder documentation page to show the subcommand section earlier than the discussion section. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <junkio@cox.net>

+
+Normally, git-rerere is run without arguments or user-intervention.

+'clear'::
+
+This resets the metadata used by rerere if a merge resolution is to be

+[--skip|--abort] will automatcally invoke this command.
+
+'diff'::
+
+This displays diffs for the current state of the resolution. It is
+useful for tracking what has changed while the user is resolving
+conflicts. Additional arguments are passed directly to the system
+diff(1) command installed in PATH.
+
+'status'::
+
+Like diff, but this only prints the filenames that will be tracked

+'gc'::
+
+This command is used to prune records of conflicted merge that
+occurred long time ago.
