blame: compute abbreviation width that ensures uniqueness

Julia Lawall noticed that in linux-next repository the commit object
60d5c9f5 (shown with the default abbreviation width baked into "git
blame") in output from

$ git blame -L 3675,3675 60d5c9f5b -- \
drivers/staging/brcm80211/brcmfmac/wl_iw.c

is no longer unique in the repository, which results in "short SHA1
60d5c9f5 is ambiguous".

Compute the minimum abbreviation width that ensures uniqueness when
the user did not specify the --abbrev option to avoid this.
