pack-objects: clamp negative depth to 0
A negative delta depth makes no sense, and the code is not prepared to handle it. If passed "--depth=-1" on the command line, then this line from break_delta_chains(): cur->depth = (total_depth--) % (depth + 1); triggers a divide-by-zero. This is undefined behavior according to the C standard, but on POSIX systems results in SIGFPE killing the process. This is certainly one way to inform the use that the command was invalid, but it's a bit friendlier to just treat it as "don't allow any deltas", which we already do for --depth=0.
