Merge branch 'jk/test-chain-lint'
People often forget to chain the commands in their test together with &&, leaving a failure from an earlier command in the test go unnoticed. The new GIT_TEST_CHAIN_LINT mechanism allows you to catch such a mistake more easily. * jk/test-chain-lint: (36 commits) t9001: drop save_confirm helper t0020: use test_* helpers instead of hand-rolled messages t: simplify loop exit-code status variables t: fix some trivial cases of ignored exit codes in loops t7701: fix ignored exit code inside loop t3305: fix ignored exit code inside loop t0020: fix ignored exit code inside loops perf-lib: fix ignored exit code inside loop t6039: fix broken && chain t9158, t9161: fix broken &&-chain in git-svn tests t9104: fix test for following larger parents t4104: drop hand-rolled error reporting t0005: fix broken &&-chains t7004: fix embedded single-quotes t0050: appease --chain-lint t9001: use test_when_finished t4117: use modern test_* helpers t6034: use modern test_* helpers t1301: use modern test_* helpers t0020: use modern test_* helpers ...

You can also set the GIT_TEST_INSTALLED environment variable to
the bindir of an existing git installation to test that installation.
