From: Johannes Schindelin <johannes.schindelin@gmx.de>

When calling `git stash` while changes were staged for files that are
marked with the `skip-worktree` bit (e.g. files that are excluded in a
sparse checkout), the files are recorded as _deleted_ instead.

The reason is that `git stash` tries to construct the tree reflecting
the worktree essentially by copying the index to a temporary one and
then updating the files from the worktree. Crucially, it calls `git
diff-index` to update also those files that are in the HEAD but have
been unstaged in the index.

However, when the temporary index is updated via `git update-index --add
--remove`, skip-worktree entries mark the files as deleted by mistake.

Let's use the newly-introduced `--ignore-skip-worktree-entries` option
of `git update-index` to prevent exactly this from happening.

Note that the regression test case deliberately avoids replicating the
scenario described above and instead tries to recreate just the symptom.

Reported by Dan Thompson.
