match_pathspec() -- return how well the spec matched

This updates the return value from match_pathspec() so that the
caller can tell cases between exact match, leading pathname
match (i.e. file "foo/bar" matches a pathspec "foo"), or
filename glob match. This can be used to prevent "rm dir" from
removing "dir/file" without explicitly asking for recursive
behaviour with -r flag, for example.
