git/add: don't include paths in the .git directory

git/add .git/foo would happily add files in the
.git directory, leaving it to other tools to filter
them out; we shouldn't do that.

While we're in here, speed things up by not iterating
over long lists of files, and allow removing files
that have not yet been committed.
