With push.default set to upstream or simple, and a detached HEAD, git
push prints the following error:
$ git push
fatal: You are not currently on a branch.
To push the history leading to the current (detached HEAD)
state now, use
git push ram HEAD:<name-of-remote-branch>
This error is not unique to upstream or simple: current cannot push with
a detached HEAD either. So, factor out the error string in preparation
for using it in current.
