rebase: update comment about FreeBSD /bin/sh
Commit 9f50d32 introduced a fix for FreeBSD /bin/sh misbehaviour when dot-sourcing a file containing "return" statements outside of any function, from a function in another shell script. That issue affects FreeBSD 9.x, and is not present in the /bin/sh in FreeBSD 10.3 and later. Update the comment to clarify this. The example from 9f50d32's commit message produces the expected output on FreeBSD 10.3 and -CURRENT (the upcoming 11.0): % sh only this line should show % Signed-off-by: Ed Maste <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

# As a work-around, we introduce an extra layer of a function
# here, and immediately call it after defining it.
