http-fetch: nicer warning for a server with unreliable 404 status
When a repository otherwise properly prepared is served by a dumb HTTP server that sends "No such page" output with 200 status for human consumption to a request for a page that does not exist, the users will get an alarming "File X corrupt" error message. Hint that they might be dealing with such a server at the end and suggest running fsck-objects to check if the result is OK (the pack-fallback code does the right thing in this case so unless a loose object file was actually corrupt the result should check OK).
