am --abort: support aborting to unborn branch
When git-am is first run on an unborn branch, no ORIG_HEAD is created. As such, any applied commits will remain even after a git am --abort. To be consistent with the behavior of git am --abort when it is not run from an unborn branch, we empty the index, and then destroy the branch pointed to by HEAD if there is no ORIG_HEAD.
