receive-pack.c: negotiate atomic push support
This adds the atomic protocol option to allow receive-pack to inform the client that it has atomic push capability. This commit makes the functionality introduced in the previous commits go live for the serving side. The changes in documentation reflect the protocol capabilities of the server.
