[RFC] mergestate: store about files resolved in favour of other

This starts storing information in mergestate about files which were automatically merged and the other/remote version of file was used. We need this information at commit to pick the filenode parent for the new commit. The commit code has weird filenode resolution here which does not depend on what merge did and rely on some file ancestry logic. That leads to problem in some cases, the tests which are changed by this patch.

Somethings which can be investigated after above 3 are done:

  1. refactoring of commit logic more to depend on this information

  2. maybe a more generic solution?
