Merge branch 'sp/reflog'
* sp/reflog: fetch.c: do not pass uninitialized lock to unlock_ref(). Test that git-branch -l works. Verify git-commit provides a reflog message. Enable ref log creation in git checkout -b. Create/delete branch ref logs. Include ref log detail in commit, reset, etc. Change order of -m option to update-ref. Correct force_write bug in refs.c Change 'master@noon' syntax to 'master@{noon}'. Log ref updates made by fetch. Force writing ref if it doesn't exist. Added logs/ directory to repository layout. General ref log reading improvements. Fix ref log parsing so it works properly. Support 'master@2 hours ago' syntax Log ref updates to logs/refs/<ref> Convert update-ref to use ref_lock API. Improve abstraction of ref lock/write.
