With the recent update in efee955 (gpg-interface: check gpg signature
creation status, 2016-06-17), we ask GPG to send all status updates to
stderr, and then catch the stderr in an strbuf.

But GPG might fail, and send error messages to stderr. And we simply
do not show them to the user.

Even worse: this swallows any interactive prompt for a passphrase. And
detaches stderr from the tty so that the passphrase cannot be read.

So while the first problem could be fixed (by printing the captured
stderr upon error), the second problem cannot be easily fixed, and
presents a major regression.

So let's just revert commit efee9553a4f97b2ecd8f49be19606dd4cf7d9c28.
