As reported earlier[0], `git checkout -p HEAD...` results in the following error:

	$ git checkout -p HEAD...
	usage: git diff-index [-m] [--cached] [<common-diff-options>] <tree-ish> [<path>...]
	common diff options:
	  -z            output diff-raw with lines terminated with NUL.
	  -p            output patch format.
	  -u            synonym for -p.
	  --patch-with-raw
			output both a patch and the diff-raw format.

	  --pickaxe-all

	Cannot close git diff-index --cached --numstat --summary HEAD... -- () at <redacted>/libexec/git-core/git-add--interactive line 183.

Since it was decided that <tree-ish> should also officially support the
merge-base revs, fix `git checkout -p <rev>...` and officially document the
support.
