Fixes since v1.7.9.2

 * "git p4" (in contrib/) submit the changes to a wrong place when the

   it needs to do over "git rev-list --objects -q" by mistake.

 * "gitweb" used to drop warnings in the log file when "heads" view is
   accessed in a repository whose HEAD does not point at a valid

 * An invalid regular expression pattern given by an end user made
   "gitweb" to return garbled response.
