Rephrase the title shown for the progress output emitted by
close_reachable(). The message I added in 7b0f229222 ("commit-graph
write: add progress output", 2018-09-17) gave the impression that it
would count up to the number of commit objects.

But that's not what the number means. It just represents the work
we're doing in several for-loops to do various work before the graph
is written out. So let's just say "Annotating commit graph", that
title makes no such promises, and we can add other loops here in the
future and still consistently show progress output.

See [1] for the initial bug report & subsequent discussion about other
approaching to solving this.
