git-branch: add options and tests for branch renaming
Extend git-branch with the following options: git-branch -m|-M [<oldbranch>] newbranch The -M variation is required to force renaming over an exsisting branchname. This also indroduces $GIT_DIR/RENAME_REF which is a "metabranch" used when renaming branches. It will always hold the original sha1 for the latest renamed branch. Additionally, if $GIT_DIR/logs/RENAME_REF exists, all branch rename events are logged there. Finally, some testcases are added to verify the new options.
