tests: add a special setup where prerequisites fail
As discussed in [1] there's a regression in the "pu" branch now because a new test implicitly assumed that a previous test guarded by a prerequisite had been run. Add a "GIT_TEST_FAIL_PREREQS" special test setup where we'll skip (nearly) all tests guarded by prerequisites, allowing us to easily emulate those platform where we don't run these tests. As noted in the documentation I'm adding I'm whitelisting the SYMLINKS prerequisite for now. A lot of tests started failing if we lied about not supporting symlinks. It's also unlikely that we'll have a failing test due to a hard dependency on symlinks without that being the obvious cause, so for now it's not worth the effort to make it work. 1.
