reset: suggest what to do upon "git reset --mixed <paths>"
When you call "git reset --mixed <paths>" git will warn that using mixed with paths is deprecated: warning: --mixed option is deprecated with paths. That doesn't tell the user what he should use instead. Expand on the warning and tell the user to just omit --mixed: warning: --mixed with paths is deprecated; use 'git reset -- <paths>' instead The exact wording of the warning was suggested by Jonathan Nieder.
