    Change incorrect "remote branch" to "remote tracking branch" in C code

    moy authored gitster committed
    (Just like we did for documentation already)
    In the process, we change "non-remote branch" to "branch outside the
    refs/remotes/ hierarchy" to avoid the ugly "non-remote-tracking branch".
    The new formulation actually corresponds to how the code detects this
    case (i.e. prefixcmp(refname, "refs/remotes")).
    Also, we use 'remote-tracking branch' in generated merge messages (by
    merge an fmt-merge-msg).
