support/download: fix the git helper
When switching the git helper over to a shell script, a special case was not carried over: in case the remote has the required reference, we attempt a shallow clone, using --depth 1. However, this is not supported when the remote is accessed with the http protocol. Therefore, the download fails. What happened before the conversion to a shell script was that the helper in the Makefile would fallback to doing a full-clone. This is the case and behaviour that were lost in the conversion. To avoid making the script too complex, we only attempt a full clone if needed. And we decide that a full clone is needed by default; we decide it is unnecessary if the remote has the needed reference *and* the shallow clone was successful. Signed-off-by: "Yann E.
