In 06f5608c14 (bisect--helper: `bisect_start` shell function
partially in C, 2019-01-02), we changed the following shell
code:

-                       rev=$(git rev-parse -q --verify "$arg^{commit}") || {
-                               test $has_double_dash -eq 1 &&
-                               die "$(eval_gettext "'\$arg' does not appear to be a valid revision")"
-                               break
-                       }
-                       revs="$revs $rev"

into:

+                       char *commit_id = xstrfmt("%s^{commit}", arg);
+                       if (get_oid(commit_id, &oid) && has_double_dash)
+                               die(_("'%s' does not appear to be a valid "
+                                     "revision"), arg);
+
+                       string_list_append(&revs, oid_to_hex(&oid));
+                       free(commit_id);

In case of an invalid "arg" when "has_double_dash" is false, the old
code would "break" out of the argument loop.

In the new C code though, `oid_to_hex(&oid)` is unconditonally
appended to "revs". This is wrong first because "oid" is junk as
`get_oid(commit_id, &oid)` failed and second because it doesn't break
out of the argument loop.

Not breaking out of the argument loop means that "arg" is then not
treated as a path restriction (which is wrong).
