I fixed both of these and squashed them into your commits since they 
were very minor changes.

I am going to update the 3rd mailmap commit now. What would you suggest 
doing if there is an error reading the mailmap file? Should it call 
cgit_print_error_page() or is that too much and instead just log an 
error message to stderr so it goes into the web server's error logs?

I looked at the git sources and didn't see any examples of any other 
code checking for errors returned by read_mailmap()
