Catch empty pathnames in trees during fsck

Released versions of fast-import have been able to create a tree that
contains files or subtrees that contain no name. Unfortunately these
trees aren't valid, but people may have actually tried to create them
due to bugs in import-tars.perl or their own fast-import frontend.

We now look for this unusual condition and warn the user if at
least one of their tree objects contains the problem.

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
