Change RUN_SETUP_GENTLY to stop dying if e.g. the .git is "not a
repo". This means that we now recover in cases like:

    $ echo "gitdir: /foo/bar" > .git
    $ git ls-remote https://github.com/torvalds/linux
    [... ls-remote output ...]

But not (as intended):

    $ git rev-parse HEAD
    fatal: not a git repository: /foo/bar

The relevant setup_git_directory_gently_1() invocation was added in
01017dce546 (setup_git_directory_gently_1(): avoid die()ing,
2017-03-13), but I could reproduce this as far back as Git v1.8.0. I
don't know if this ever worked, but it should.

Let's also use the compiler to check enum arms for us, instead of
having a "default" fall-though case, this changes code added in
ce9b8aab5d9 (setup_git_directory_1(): avoid changing global state,
2017-03-13).
