gitk: Parse arbitrary commit-ish in SHA1 field
We only accepted either SHA1s or heads/tags that have been read. This meant the user could not, e.g., enter HEAD to go back to the current commit. This adds code to call out to git rev-parse --verify if all other methods of interpreting the string the user entered fail. (git-rev-parse alone is not enough as we really want a single revision.) The error paths change slighly, because we now know from the rev-parse invocation whether the expression was valid at all. The previous "unknown" path is now only triggered if the revision does exist, but is not in the current view display. Signed-off-by: Thomas Rast <> Signed-off-by: Paul Mackerras <>
