cvsserver: Fix for histories with multiple roots

Git histories may have multiple roots, which can cause
git merge-base to fail and this caused git cvsserver to die.

This commit teaches git cvsserver to handle a failing git
merge-base gracefully, and modifies the test case to verify this.
All the test cases now use a history with two roots.
