Learn to handle gitfiles in enter_repo

The enter_repo() function is used to navigate into a .git
directory.  It knows how to find standard alternatives (DWIM) but
it doesn't handle gitfiles created by git init --separate-git-dir.
This means that git-fetch and others do not work with repositories
using the separate-git-dir mechanism.

Teach enter_repo() to deal with the gitfile mechanism by resolving
the path to the redirected path and continuing tests on that path
instead of the found file.
