Subject RE: IMPORTANT: testing patches for branches

Thanks Allen for the great work. I tried in HADOOP-11847 (branch HDFS-7285) and it went well,
very helpfully!

	Both, now that a fix has been committed last night (there was a bug in the Jenkins handling).

	Given a patch name or URL, Jenkins and even running locally will try a few different methods
to figure out which branch to use  out.  Note that a branch name of 'gitX' where X is a valid
git reference also works to force a patch to start at a particular commit. 

	For local use, you'll want to use a 'spare' copy of the source tree via the -basedir option
and use the -resetrepo flag.  That will enable Jenkins-like behavior and gives it permission
to make modifications and effectively nuke any changes in the source tree you point it at.
 (Basically the opposite of the -dirty-workspace flag).  If you want to force a branch (for
whatever reason, including where the branch can't be figured out), you can use the -branch

	If you don't use -resetrepo, test-patch.sh will warn that it thinks the wrong branch is being
used but will push on anyway.

	In any case, the result of what it thinks the branch is/should be will be in the summary
output at the bottom along with the git ref that it specifically used for the test.
