Correct documentation of 'reflog show' to explain it shows HEAD
By default 'git reflog show' will show the reflog of 'HEAD' and not the reflog of the current branch. This is most likely due to the work done a while ago as part of the detached HEAD series to allow HEAD to have its own reflog independent of each branch's reflog. Since 'git reflog show' is really just an obscure alias for 'git log -g --abbrev-commit --pretty=oneline' it should behave the same way and its documentation should match. Signed-off-by: Shawn O.

The subcommand "show" (which is also the default, in the absense of any
subcommands) will take all the normal log options, and show the log of
-the current branch. It is basically an alias for 'git log -g --abbrev-commit
+`HEAD`, which will cover all recent actions, including branch switches.
