From: Alexandr Miloslavskiy <alexandr.miloslavskiy@syntevo.com>

Make it easier to understand which branches handle which cases.

Drop obfuscated variable `has_dash_dash` which also took
`opts->accept_pathspec` into account, making it pretty hard to reason
about code, especially when used together with `argc` and
`opts->accept_pathspec` here:

	if (!(argc == 1 && !has_dash_dash) &&
		!(argc == 2 && has_dash_dash) &&
		opts->accept_pathspec)
		recover_with_dwim = 0;

Avoid double-negation in the code mentioned above ("it is not OK to
proceed if it's not one of those cases").

Avoid hard-to-understand condition `opts->accept_pathspec` in the code
mentioned above.

There are some minor die() message changes for:
`git switch <commit> <unexpected>`
`git switch <commit> -- <unexpected>`
