Rename git-pack-intersect to git-pack-redundant

This patch renames git-pack-intersect to git-pack-redundant
as suggested by Petr Baudis. The new name reflects what the
program does, rather than how it does it.

Also fix a small argument parsing bug.

-git-pack-intersect(1)
-=====================
-
-NAME
-----
-git-pack-intersect - Program used to find redundant pack files.
-
-
-SYNOPSIS
---------
-'git-pack-intersect [ -v ] < -a | .pack filename ... >'
-
-DESCRIPTION
------------
-This program computes which packs in your repository
-are redundant. The output is suitable for piping to
-'xargs rm' if you are in the root of the repository.
-
-OPTIONS
--------
-
--v::
-	Verbose. Outputs some statistics to stderr.
-	Has a small performance penalty.
-
--a::
-	All. Processes all the local packs. Any filenames on
-	the commandline are ignored.
