color_parse_mem: allow empty color spec
Prior to c2f41bf52 (color.c: fix color_parse_mem() with value_len == 0, 2017-01-19), the empty string was interpreted as a color "reset". This was an accidental outcome, and that commit turned it into an error. However, scripts may pass the empty string as a default value to "git config --get-color" to disable color when the value is not defined. The git-add--interactive script does this. As a result, the script is unusable since c2f41bf52 unless you have color.diff.plain defined (if it is defined, then we don't parse the empty default at all). Our test scripts didn't notice the recent breakage because they run without a terminal, and thus without color. They never hit this code path at all. And nobody noticed the original buggy "reset" behavior, because it was effectively a noop. Let's fix the code to have an empty color name produce an empty sequence of color codes. The tests need a few fixups: - we'll add a new test in t4026 to cover this case. But note that we need to tweak the color() helper. While we're there, let's factor out the literal ANSI ESC character. Otherwise it makes the diff quite hard to read. - we'll add a basic sanity-check in t4026 that "git add -p" works at all when color is enabled. That would have caught this bug, as well as any others that are specific to the color code paths. - 73c727d69 (log --graph: customize the graph lines with config log.graphColors, 2017-01-19) added a test to t4202 that checks some "invalid" graph color config. Since ",, blue" before yielded only "blue" as valid, and now yields "empty, empty, blue", we don't match the expected output. One way to fix this would be to change the expectation to the empty color strings. But that makes the test much less interesting, since we show only two graph lines, both of which would be colorless. Since the empty-string case is now covered by t4026, let's remove them entirely here. They're just in the way of the primary thing the test is supposed to be checking.
