checkout.txt: document a common case that ignores ambiguation rules
Normally we err on the safe side: if something can be seen as both an SHA1 and a pathspec, we stop and scream. In checkout, there is one exception added in 859fdab (git-checkout: improve error messages, detect ambiguities. - 2008-07-23), to allow the common case "git checkout branch". Let's document this exception. Signed-off-by: Nguyễn Thái Ngọc Duy <pclouds@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <gitster@pobox.com>
