Add support for .gitignore pattern negation

Issue #190 new

created an issue

See for reference: https://git-scm.com/docs/gitignore

If a pattern starts with !, it negates that pattern.

The repo clones just fine, but when running status, this error message comes up:

.gitignore: unsupported ignore pattern '!.gitignore'

Here's a sample repo that uses these types of ignore files:

git://uclibc.org/uClibc.git

    I encountered the same issue. It is indeed a serious bug because you can not do anything with git repositories using this pattern negation.

    Would it be difficult to solve this problem?
