The pre-commit hook is often used to ensure certain properties of each
comitted tree like formatting or coding standards, validity (lint/make)
or code quality (make test). But merges introduce new commits unless
they are fast forwards, and therefore they can break these properties
because the pre-commit hook is not run by "git merge".

Introduce a pre-merge hook which works for (non ff, automatic) merges
like pre-commit does for commits. Typically this will just call the
pre-commit hook (like in the sample hook), but it does not need to.
