oeqa.utils.git.GitRepo: new arg to require topdir
Add a new 'is_topdir' argument to the GitRepo init method which validates that the given path is the top directory of a Git repository. Without this argument GitRepo also accepts subdirectories of a Git repository (in which case GitRepo will point to the parent directory that is the top directory of this repository) which may have undesired in some cases.
