bug#15696: 24.3; vc-git-annotate-command -- ambiguous short commit hashe

From: Phil Sainty
Subject: bug#15696: 24.3; vc-git-annotate-command -- ambiguous short commit hashes cause failures

`vc-git-annotate-command' looks like this:

(defun vc-git-annotate-command (file buf &optional rev)
  (let ((name (file-relative-name file)))
    (vc-git-command buf 'async nil "blame" "--date=iso" "-C" "-C" rev "--"

By default, git blame produces short commit hashes. You need to pass
the -l argument to make it produce full hashes.

This is a problem if the short hash is ambiguous, as none of the
vc-annotate commands for interacting with that commit work.

Example errors for ambiguous commit hash 7b10edf8:

'f' (`vc-annotate-find-revision-at-line'):
Checking out (filename).~7b10edf8~...
vc-do-command: Running git cat-file blob 7b... ....FAILED (status 128)

'D' (`vc-annotate-show-changeset-diff-revision-at-line'):
Cannot diff from any revision prior to 7b10edf8

'l' (`vc-annotate-show-log-revision-at-line'):
error: short SHA1 7b10edf8 is ambiguous.
fatal: bad revision '7b10edf8'

'a' (`vc-annotate-revision-previous-to-line'):
vc-annotate-warp-revision: Invalid argument to vc-annotate-warp-revision

On the command line:
$ git show 7b10edf8
error: short SHA1 7b10edf8 is ambiguous.
error: short SHA1 7b10edf8 is ambiguous.
fatal: ambiguous argument '7b10edf8': unknown revision or path not in the
working tree.
Use '--' to separate paths from revisions

I suspect the best solution is to pass -l by default, and perhaps
*hide* the remainder of the full commit hash in the annotate buffer
-- but internally always utilise the full hash for all commands.

(Will this also be a problem elsewhere in the vc-git support?)
