The right fix for that is to fix that line, so that the test itself
can run under any sane POSIX shell, isn't it?  The test in turn may
need to run git-remote-testgit, which, without J6t's updates, only
is usable under bash, but to make sure the test will choke on
absence of bash, the existing check should be sufficient, no?
