[PATCH] Add git-var a tool for reading interesting git variables.
Sharing code between shell scripts and C is a challenge. The program git-var allows us to have a set of named values that a shell script can interrogate and a normal C program can simply call the functions that compute them. Allowing sharing when computing plain test values. Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>
