Ok, here are some patches that make git actually
check out the current remote branch when cloning.

Up to now this failed when there were two branches that pointed to
the HEAD commit of the remote repo, and git clone would sometimes
choose the wrong one as the HEAD ref isn't transmitted in all

Stuff the HEAD ref into the capability list (assuming refs are clean
enough to do that w/o escaping), and read them out on the other
side. All other things were thankfully already in place.

Two of the patches have Junio in the From as they are essentially his.


Does this have any impact on the alleged bug in `git bundle --all` (which can then be cloned from) where the current HEAD ref wasn't included in the bundle? Or am I mis-remembering?
