When using git clone with --separate-git-dir realgitdir and
realgitdir already exists, it's content is destroyed.

So, make sure we don't clone into an existing non-empty directory.

Note: #d45420c1: "clone: do not clean up directories we didn't create"
assumed we always write into an empty directory, but missed the check
for real_git_dir, this commit fixed it by adding the check.
