1. I open a git versioned file with vc-git enabled in a directory
   currently in detached HEAD state (e.g. after checking out a tag)
2. notice the mode line says "Git:!"

Now, when I do

C-x v g (vc-annotate)

The annotation buffer will be displayed, only saying

| fatal: bad revision ''

Apparently, vc-git-working-revision calls "git symbolic-ref HEAD",
which - in this case - gives:

$ git symbolic-ref HEAD
fatal: ref HEAD is not a symbolic ref

So, vc-git-working-revision returns an empty string as the current
"revision" vc-mode refers to.

M-: (vc-git-working-revision (buffer-file-name))

-> ""

When calling vc-annotate, the vc-git-annotate-command gets called with
the empty string for the rev parameter leading to the error.

This patch fixes it for me:
