test doc: test_write_lines does not split its arguments
test_write_lines carefully quotes its arguments as "$@", so test_write_lines "a b" c writes two lines as requested, not three. Signed-off-by: Jonathan Nieder <jrnieder@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <gitster@pobox.com>

- - test_write_lines <text>
+ - test_write_lines <lines>
- Split <text> to white-space separated words and write it out on standard
- output, one word per line.
+ Write <lines> on standard output, one line per argument.
Useful to prepare multi-line files in a compact form.
Example:
- test_write_lines "a b c d e f g" >foo
+ test_write_lines a b c d e f g >foo
Is a more compact equivalent of:
cat >foo <<-EOF
