    Use tag for import branch naming when given

    When importing using a tag for the upstream point to use, use the given
    tag provided instead of running describe against it again as this might
    result in the wrong tag being returned.

    The documentation for git describe states that when provided a tag,
    `git describe <tag>` will simply return the given tag, however
    when it is not an annotated tag it is possible for there to be multiple
    tags on the same commit and `git describe` may return any of them
    instead of the originally given tag. Explicitly add a check to see if
    the commit(ish) reference to import from is a tag and skip calling `git
    describe` in such a case.
