When we have sparse directory entries in the index, we want to compare
that directory against sparse-checkout patterns. Those pattern matching
algorithms are built expecting a file path, not a directory path. This
is especially important in the "cone mode" patterns which will match
files that exist within the "parent directories" as well as the
recursive directory matches.

If path_matches_pattern_list() is given a directory, we can add a fake
filename ("-") to the directory and get the same results as before,
assuming we are in cone mode. Since sparse index requires cone mode
patterns, this is an acceptable assumption.
