rebase: give a better error message for bogus branch

When you give a non-existent branch to git-rebase, it spits
out the usage. This can be confusing, since you may
understand the usage just fine, but simply have made a
mistake in the branch name.

Before:

$ git rebase origin bogus
Usage: git rebase ...

After:

$ git rebase origin bogus
fatal: no such branch: bogus
Usage: git rebase ...
