cache-tree.c: fix i-t-a entry skipping directory updates sometimes
Commit 3cf773e (cache-tree: fix writing cache-tree when CE_REMOVE is present - 2012-12-16) skips i-t-a entries when building trees objects from the index. Unfortunately it may skip too much. The code in question checks if an entry is an i-t-a one, then no tree entry will be written. But it does not take into account that directories can also be written with the same code. Suppose we have this in the index. a-file subdir/file1 subdir/file2 subdir/file3 the-last-file We write an entry for a-file as normal and move on to subdir/file1, where we realize the entry name for this level is simply just "subdir", write down an entry for "subdir" then jump three items ahead to the-last-file. That is what happens normally when the first file in subdir is not an i-t-a entry. If subdir/file1 is an i-t-a, because of the broken condition in this code, we still think "subdir" is an i-t-a file and not writing "subdir" down and jump to the-last-file. The result tree now only has two items: a-file and the-last-file. subdir should be there too (even though it only records two sub-entries, file2 and file3). If the i-t-a entry is subdir/file2 or subdir/file3, this is not a problem because we jump over them anyway. Which may explain why the bug is hidden for nearly four years. Fix it by making sure we only skip i-t-a entries when the entry in question is actual an index entry, not a directory.
