sequencer: fix edit handling for cherry-pick and revert messages
save_opts() should save any non-default values. It was intended to do this, but since most options in struct replay_opts default to 0, it only saved non-zero values. Unfortunately, this does not always work for options.edit. Roughly speaking, options.edit had a default value of 0 for cherry-pick but a default value of 1 for revert. Make save_opts() record a value whenever it differs from the default. options.edit was also overly simplistic; we had more than two cases. The behavior that previously existed was as follows: Non-conflict commits Right after Conflict revert Edit iff isatty(0) Edit (ignore isatty(0)) cherry-pick No edit See above Specify --edit Edit (ignore isatty(0)) See above Specify --no-edit (*) See above (*) Before stopping for conflicts, No edit is the behavior. After stopping for conflicts, the --no-edit flag is not saved so see the first two rows. However, the expected behavior is: Non-conflict commits Right after Conflict revert Edit iff isatty(0) Edit iff isatty(0) cherry-pick No edit Edit iff isatty(0) Specify --edit Edit (ignore isatty(0)) Edit (ignore isatty(0)) Specify --no-edit No edit No edit In order to get the expected behavior, we need to change options.edit to a tri-state: unspecified, false, or true. When specified, we follow what it says. When unspecified, we need to check whether the current commit being created is resolving a conflict as well as consulting options.action and isatty(0). While at it, add a should_edit() utility function that compresses options.edit down to a boolean based on the additional information for the non-conflict case. continue_single_pick() is the function responsible for resuming after conflict cases, regardless of whether there is one commit being picked or many. Make this function stop assuming edit behavior in all cases, so that it can correctly handle !isatty(0) and specific requests to not edit the commit message.
