Merge branch 'rt/maint-clone-single' into maint

A repository created with "git clone --single" had its fetch
refspecs set up just like a clone without "--single", leading the
subsequent "git fetch" to slurp all the other branches, defeating
the whole point of specifying "only this branch".

* rt/maint-clone-single:
clone --single: limit the fetch refspec to fetched branch

 After the clone, a plain `git fetch` without arguments will update
 all the remote-tracking branches, and a `git pull` without
 arguments will in addition merge the remote master branch into the
-current master branch, if any.

 This default configuration is achieved by creating references to
 the remote branch heads under `refs/remotes/origin` and
