Notes API: init_notes(): Initialize the notes tree from the given notes ref

Created by a simple refactoring of initialize_notes().

Also add a new 'flags' parameter, which is a bitwise combination of notes
initialization flags. For now, there is only one flag - NOTES_INIT_EMPTY -
which indicates that the notes tree should not auto-load the contents of
the given (or default) notes ref, but rather should leave the notes tree
initialized to an empty state. This will become useful in the future when
manipulating the notes tree through the notes API.

* Flags controlling behaviour of notes tree initialization
* Default behaviour is to initialize the notes tree from the tree object
* specified by the given (or default) notes ref.
* Initialize internal notes tree structure with the notes tree at the given
* ref. If given ref is NULL, the value of the $GIT_NOTES_REF environment
* variable is used, and if that is missing, the default notes ref is used
* ("refs/notes/commits").
* If you need to re-intialize the internal notes tree structure (e.g. loading
* from a different notes ref), please first de-initialize the current notes
* tree by calling free_notes().
