Change git-gc documentation to reflect gc.packrefs implementation.
56752391a8c0c591853b276e4fa0b45c34ced181 (Make "git gc" pack all refs by default) changed the default of gc.packrefs to true, to pack all refs by default in any repository. IOW, the users need to disable it explicitly if they want to by setting the config variable, since 1.5.3. However, we forgot to update the documentation. This fixes it.
