I guess it's better to avoid repeating the comments in both the .h and
.c file as they might quite easily become stale. I would prefer keeping
it in the header file alone.

The change was simple by splitting the function into two and calling
the right function as required at every call site! As far as I could
see this doesn't seem to be reducing the confusion that the 'attr_only'
parameter caused. That's because the new validate_branchname function
seems to be called in some cases when the 'force' parameter is true and
in other cases the 'force' parameter is sent to the
'validate_new_branchname' function. So, I think consistency is lacking
in this change. That's just my opinion, of course.
