From: Derrick Stolee <dstolee@microsoft.com>

Remove the error condition when updating the sparse-checkout leaves
an empty working directory.

This behavior was added in 9e1afb167 (sparse checkout: inhibit empty
worktree, 2009-08-20). The comment was added in a7bc906f2 (Add
explanation why we do not allow to sparse checkout to empty working
tree, 2011-09-22) in response to a "dubious" comment in 84563a624
(unpack-trees.c: cosmetic fix, 2010-12-22).

With the recent "cone mode" and "git sparse-checkout init [--cone]"
command, it is common to set a reasonable sparse-checkout pattern
set of

	/*
	!/*/

which matches only files at root. If the repository has no such files,
then their "git sparse-checkout init" command will fail.

Now that we expect this to be a common pattern, we should not have the
commands fail on an empty working directory. If it is a confusing
result, then the user can recover with "git sparse-checkout disable"
or "git sparse-checkout set". This is especially simple when using cone
mode.

    sparse-checkout: stop blocking empty workdirs
    
    This is based on en/sparse-checkout.
    
    This is something that Lars Schneider discovered working with a repo
    that had no files at root.
    
    Thanks, -Stolee

Yeah, given that setting up a sparse-checkout is now easy (as opposed
to setting both extensions.worktreeConfig and core.sparseCheckout
settings, editing a .git/info/sparse-checkout file that is documented
in some obscure section of the manual, and discovering the
undocumented `git read-tree -mu HEAD` command that you need to run)
and drastically less error-prone, and that recovery is now easy (also
in contrast to before), I think this makes a lot of sense.

I actually hit this error a couple times while testing with the old
style and thought it was annoying (though understandable when the
route for usage was so arcane and easy to mess up), but in my case I
wasn't on a real world repository.  If we've got an example of people
hitting it on real world repos, then by all means let's get rid of
this annoying check.

It looks like this check is obsolete as the "Sparse checkout leaves no
entry on working directory" error has been removed by this patch
below...

So maybe instead of the 3 lines below:

> +               git sparse-checkout set nothing 2>err &&
> +               test_i18ngrep ! "Sparse checkout leaves no entry on working directory" err &&

we should just have:

               git sparse-checkout set nothing &&

?
