Fix .git/ discovery at the root of UNC shares
A very common assumption in Git's source code base is that offset_1st_component() returns either 0 for relative paths, or 1 for absolute paths that start with a slash. In other words, the return value is either 0 or points just after the dir separator. This assumption is not fulfilled when calling offset_1st_component() e.g. on UNC paths on Windows, e.g. "//my-server/my-share". In this case, offset_1st_component() returns the length of the entire string (which is correct, because stripping the last "component" would not result in a valid directory), yet the return value still does not point just after a dir separator. This assumption is most prominently seen in the setup_git_directory_gently_1() function, where we want to append a ".git" component and simply assume that there is already a dir separator. In the UNC example given above, this assumption is incorrect. As a consequence, Git will fail to handle a worktree at the top of a UNC share correctly. Let's fix this by adding a dir separator specifically for that case: we found that there is no first component in the path and it does not end in a dir separator? Then add it.
