"git branch" and "git checkout -b" now honor --track option even when
the upstream branch is local. Previously --track was silently ignored
when forking from a local branch. Also the command did not error out
when --track was explicitly asked for but the forked point specified
was not an existing branch (i.e. when there is no way to set up the
tracking configuration), but now it correctly does.
The configuration setting branch.autosetupmerge can now be set to
"always", which is equivalent to using --track from the command line.
Setting branch.autosetupmerge to "true" will retain the former behavior
of only setting up branch.*.merge for remote upstream branches.
Includes test cases for the new functionality.
