hg-to-git: handle an empty dir in hg.
Mark Drago had a subversion repository which was then converted to hg and now is moving in to git. The first commit in the svn repo was just the creation of the empty directory. This made its way in to the hg repository fine, but converting from hg to git would cause an error. The problem was that tries to commit the change, git-commit fails, and then tries to checkout the new revision and that fails (because it was not created). This may have only caused an error because it was the first commit in the repository. If an empty directory was added in the middle of the repo somewhere things might have worked out fine. This patch will use the new --allow-empty option to git-commit to record such an "empty" commit, to reproduce the history recorded in hg more faithfully.
