Series [v3] git-merge: rewrite already up to date message | expand

From: Josh Soref <jsoref@gmail.com>

The rewrite of git-merge from shell to C in 1c7b76be7d (Build in merge,
2008-07-07) accidentally transformed the message:

    Already up-to-date. (nothing to squash)

to:

    (nothing to squash)Already up-to-date.

due to reversed printf() arguments. This problem has gone unnoticed
despite being touched over the years by 7f87aff22c (Teach/Fix pull/fetch
-q/-v options, 2008-11-15) and bacec47845 (i18n: git-merge basic
messages, 2011-02-22), and tangentially by bef4830e88 (i18n: merge: mark
messages for translation, 2016-06-17) and 7560f547e6 (treewide: correct
several "up-to-date" to "up to date", 2017-08-23).

Fix it by restoring the message to its intended order. While at it, help
translators out by avoiding "sentence Lego".

The original scripted Porcelain may have said so, but the placement
of full-stop in the above feels a bit strange.  Should we rephrase
it to

	Already up to date (nothing to squash).

as we are fixing the phrasing now?

I don't have a strong opinion about it, and can go either way with it.
Josh's patch did place the full-stop after the closing parenthesis. I
can re-roll if people think that would be preferable (unless you want
to change it locally while queuing).
