Refactor "tracking statistics" code used by "git checkout"
People seem to like "Your branch is ahead by N commit" report made by "git checkout", but the interface into the statistics function was a bit clunky. This splits the function into three parts: * The core "commit counting" function that takes "struct branch" and returns number of commits to show if we are ahead, behind or forked; * Convenience "stat formating" function that takes "struct branch" and formats the report into a given strbuf, using the above function; * "checkout" specific function that takes "branch_info" (type that is internal to checkout implementation), calls the above function and print the formatted result. in the hope that the former two can be more easily reusable.
