Maybe it would make sense to just check that cherry-pick doesn't
segfault in this case?
That is, compute the output but don't compare it to expected output, as
test_expect_success 'adding signoff to empty message does something
git reset --hard HEAD^ &&
git cherry-pick --allow-empty-message -s empty-branch &&
git show --pretty=format:%B -s empty-branch >actual &&
# sign-off is included *somewhere*
grep "^Signed-off-by:.*>\$" actual
Alternatively, if there are only a few sane behaviors, a test can check
for all of them and pass as long as git follows one. I haven't thought
carefully enough about this example to suggest doing that.
