git rev-parse --parseopt does not allow us to see the difference
between an option with an optional argument starting with a dash, and an
option with an unset optional argument followed by an other option.

If I use this script :

  $ cat /tmp/opt.sh
  #!/bin/sh
  OPTIONS_SPEC="\
  git [options]
  --
  q,quiet         be quiet
  S,gpg-sign?     GPG-sign commit"
  echo "$OPTIONS_SPEC" | git rev-parse --parseopt $parseopt_extra -- "$@"

Then the following two commands give us the same result :

  $ /tmp/opt.sh -S -q
  set -- -S -q --
  $ /tmp/opt.sh -S-q
  set -- -S '-q' --

We cannot know if '-q' is an argument to '-S' or a new option.

With this patch, rev-parse --parseopt will always give an argument to
optional options, as an empty string if the argument is unset.

The same two commands now give us :

  $ /tmp/opt.sh -S -q
  set -- -S '' -q --
  $ /tmp/opt.sh -S-q
  set -- -S '-q' --

We can now see if '-q' is an argument to '-S' or an other option.

Also adding two tests in t1502.

There does not seem to be any shell script git command included in git
sources tree that is currently using optional arguments and could be
affected by this change.
