Don't allow combination of -g and --reverse as it doesn't work
The --walk-reflogs logic and the --reverse logic are completely incompatible with one another. Attempting to use both at the same time leads to confusing results that sometimes violates the user's formatting options or ignores the user's request to see the reflog message and timestamp. Unfortunately the implementation of both of these features is glued onto the side of the revision walking machinary in such a way that they are probably not going to be easy to make them compatible with each other. Rather than offering the user confusing results we are better off bailing out with an error message until such a time as the implementations can be refactored to be compatible.
