merge: add --quit
This allows to cancel the current merge without resetting worktree/index, which is what --abort is for. Like other --quit(s), this is often used when you forgot that you're in the middle of a merge and already switched away, doing different things. By the time you've realized, you can't even continue the merge anymore. This also makes all in-progress commands, am, merge, rebase, revert and cherry-pick, take all three --abort, --continue and --quit (bisect has a different UI).
