Enhance Git Plugin LocalBranch to better support Maven release builds

      Maven SCM support for branches relies on the local branch name being the same as the remote branch name. Tools such as the maven-release-plugin will push changes using the same local and remote branch names as explained at https://maven.apache.org/scm/git.html

      Ex. git push pushUrl currentBranch:currentBranch

      Jenkins jobs that perform a maven release MUST configure the LocalBranch extension with the correct branch name sans the remote name. For example, if building a release for origin/master, you must configure LocalBranch to be master.

      To facilitate this requirement, LocalBranch values of "**" or null should be allowed and result in using the remote branch name.
