FS#1513 - [git] Multiple CVEs

CVE-2020-5260 has been fixed very recently in Debian, so I thought I would apply this patch. However, I found out that security patches have not been applied for quite a while (I could account for at least 6 CVEs).

Considering that the version in Debian stretch (2.11.0) is the nearest version with security patches released by Debian and that git project oldest supported version is 2.17, I have used patches from Debian stretch to apply on 2.12.2 currently in Milky Way.

But I have the following error on check():

This does not seem to be related to my change as the current version in Milky Way produces the same error (IOW the package currently in Milky Way is not rebuidable).
