When merges involve content conflicts, merge.conflictstyle=diff3 can be
used to also show the content for the file from the base version.  If
there was more than one merge base, then the "base version" is
determined by merging the merge bases to create a virtual merge base.
This means that the "base version" of the file can itself already have
conflict markers.  In the past, this could have created a situation
where users have difficulty distinguishing between the inner and outer
conflict markers.  However, commit d694a17986a2 ("ll-merge: use a longer
conflict marker for internal merge", 2016-04-14) addressed this issue by
making conflict markers two characters longer for a virtual merge base.

Unfortunately, this solution was incomplete.  The recursive merge
algorithm is, as you'd expect from it's name, recursive in nature.  In
particular, this means that the virtual merge base itself could have had
a virtual merge base of its own that contained conflict markers.  In
other words, we can have three (or more) levels of conflict markers when
using merge.conflictstyle=diff3.  Thus, what we need is for conflict
marker length to increase with the depth of recursion.  Add a testcase
demonstrating the problem and testing for marker length increasing with
increasing recursion depth.
