Merge branch 'as/check-ignore'
Add a new command "git check-ignore" for debugging .gitignore files. The variable names may want to get cleaned up but that can be done in-tree. * as/check-ignore: clean.c, ls-files.c: respect encapsulation of exclude_list_groups t0008: avoid brace expansion add git-check-ignore sub-command setup.c: document get_pathspec() add.c: extract new die_if_path_beyond_symlink() for reuse add.c: extract check_path_for_gitlink() from treat_gitlinks() for reuse pathspec.c: rename newly public functions for clarity add.c: move pathspec matchers into new pathspec.c for reuse add.c: remove unused argument from validate_pathspec() dir.c: improve docs for match_pathspec() and match_pathspec_depth() dir.c: provide clear_directory() for reclaiming dir_struct memory dir.c: keep track of where patterns came from dir.c: use a single struct exclude_list per source of excludes Conflicts: builtin/ls-files.c dir.c
