apply: do not read from the filesystem under --index
We currently read the preimage to apply a patch from the index only when the --cached option is given. Do so also when the command is running under the --index option. With --index, the index entry and the working tree file for a path that is involved in a patch must be identical, so this should not affect the result, but by reading from the index, we will get the protection to avoid reading an unintended path beyond a symbolic link automatically.
