Hi all,

please review this patch that adds the `--fast-forward` option to `git-sync`.
Setting the option `--fast-forward` will cause `git-sync` to fast-forward all
local branches where possible. Since it is mostly common that developer's do
not make change to branches in their personal forks that are also present in
the upstream repository, the effect is that all local branches that map to
upstream branches (via the personal fork) will be updated locally.
