git-checkout: describe detached head correctly

When you have a file called HEAD in the work tree, the code to report
where the HEAD is at when "git checkout $commit^0" is done triggered
unnecessary ambiguity checking.

Explicitly mark the command line with "--" and make it clear that we are
talking about a revision.
