When continuing an interactive rebase after a merge conflict was solved,
if the resolution could not be committed, sequencer_continue() would
return early without releasing its todo list, resulting in a memory
leak.  This plugs this leak by jumping to the end of the function, where
the todo list is deallocated.

I found this while adding support of rebase.missingCommitCheck to `git
rebase --continue'.
