These were originally removed by 0232852 (t5537: move
http tests out to t5539, 2014-02-13). However, they were
accidentally re-added in 1ddb4d7 (Merge branch
'nd/upload-pack-shallow', 2014-03-21).

This looks like an error in manual conflict resolution.
Here's what happened:

  1. v1.9.0 shipped with the http tests in t5537.

  2. We realized that this caused problems, and built
     0232852 on top to move the tests to their own file.
     This fix made it into v1.9.1.

  3. We later had another fix in nd/upload-pack-shallow that
     also touched t5537. It was built directly on v1.9.0.

When we merged nd/upload-pack-shallow to master, we got a
conflict; it was built on a version with the http tests, but
we had since removed them. The correct resolution was to
drop the http tests and keep the new ones, but instead we
kept everything.

This is a regression in running "make test" in v2.0.0 for people who do
not have apache installed, so it would be nice to hit maint for 2.0.1.

I had a very hard time finding the merge to blame, because the
combined-diff code is convinced this isn't an interesting hunk (because
we kept no content from the other side, as there was none to keep!). I
eventually tracked it down with "git log --first-parent -m t/t5537*".

And a final side note. If you retry the merge by:

  git checkout $m^1
  git merge $m^2

you can see the resulting conflict is quite tricky to understand. You
can tell from the blank "ours" side that _something_ was removed
(otherwise there would not have been a conflict), but there is no way to
tell what, or that the same something is part of the "theirs" side.
Viewing it with diff3 conflict-style makes it much more obvious.
