cvsserver: Don't lie about binary mode in asciidoc documentation
The git-cvsserver documentation claims that the server will set -k modes if appropriate which is not really the case. On the other hand the available gitcvs.allbinary variable is not documented at all. Fix both these issues by rewording the related paragraph.
