reset: improve worktree safety valves

The existing code checked to make sure we were not in a bare
repository when doing a hard reset. However, we should take
this one step further, and make sure we are in a worktree.
Otherwise, we can end up munging files inside of '.git'.

Furthermore, we should do the same check for --merge resets,
which have the same properties. Actually, a merge reset of
HEAD^ would already complain, since further down in the code
we want a worktree. However, it is nicer to check up-front;
then we are sure we cover all cases ("git reset --merge"
would run, even though it wasn't doing anything) and we can
give a more specific message.

Add tests to t7103 to cover these cases and some missing ones.
