git-merge: add support for --commit and --no-squash
These options can be used to override --no-commit and --squash, which is needed since --no-commit and --squash now can be specified as default merge options in $GIT_DIR/config. The change also introduces slightly different behavior for --no-commit: when specified, it explicitly overrides --squash. Earlier, 'git merge --squash --no-commit' would result in a squashed merge (i.e. no $GIT_DIR/MERGE_HEAD was created) but with this patch the command will behave as if --squash hadn't been specified.
