If git merge --no-commit is used to merge a commit adding a
file with an unusual mode -- specifically a symlink which has "mode" 120000,
it fails to stage the right mode into the index.

This only happens when core.symlinks=false. I noticed it on FAT, but
have managed to reproduce it on ext4.

There's a similar breakage with core.filemode=false, which loses the x bit of files that need a content merge.
