git-clone: Sync documentation to usage note.
Documentation advertises the new `--depth <n>' parameter with an equal sign, while the usage notes (shown after `git-clone --help') do not. If I understood git-clone's source code correctly, the version without the equal sign is correct, which is why this patch syncs documentation to the usage note.
