It's because the new git-diff-files expects there to be a valid readable 
.git/HEAD, and is unhappy since the test hasn't updated HEAD.

Fix test failure due to overly strict .git directory tests

We may not actually have a valid HEAD at all times, so relax the validity 
tests for a .git subdirectory accordingly.
