From: Elijah Newren <newren@gmail.com>

In the past, we dis-allowed rebases using the interactive backend from
performing a fast-forward to short-circuit the rebase operation.  This
made sense for explicitly interactive rebases and some implicitly
interactive rebases, but certainly became overly stringent when the
merge backend was re-implemented via the interactive backend.

Just as the am-based rebase has always had to disable the fast-forward
based on a variety of conditions or flags (e.g. --signoff, --whitespace,
etc.), we need to do the same but now with a few more options.  However,
continuing to use REBASE_FORCE for tracking this is problematic because
the interactive backend used it for a different purpose.  (When
REBASE_FORCE wasn't set, the interactive backend would not fast-forward
the whole series but would fast-forward individual "pick" commits at the
beginning of the todo list, and then a squash or something would cause
it to start generating new commits.)  So, introduce a new
allow_preemptive_ff flag contained within cmd_rebase() and use it to
track whether we are going to allow a pre-emptive fast-forward that
short-circuits the whole rebase.
