Subject[PATCH] scripts/setlocalversion: Improve -dirty check with git-status --no-optional-locks
git-diff-index does not refresh the index for you, so using it for a
"-dirty" check can give misleading results. Commit 6147b1cf19651
("scripts/setlocalversion: git: Make -dirty check more robust") tried to
fix this by switching to git-status, but it overlooked the fact that
git-status also writes to the .git directory of the source tree, which
is definitely not kosher for an out-of-tree (O=) build. That is getting
reverted.

Fortunately, git-status now supports avoiding writing to the index via
the --no-optional-locks flag, as of git 2.14. It still calculates an
up-to-date index, but it avoids writing it out to the .git directory.

So, let's retry the solution from commit 6147b1cf19651 using this new
flag first, and if it fails, we assume this is an older version of git
and just use the old git-diff-index method.

Done.

It's not supremely beautiful, but I believe it works. I tested with new
git, and with a faked git wrapper that rejects --no-optional-locks,
dumps an error to stderr, and returns a non-zero exit code. I don't
happen to have an older copy of git lying around at the moment...
