Update git-merge documentation.
Add "Configuration" section to describe merge.summary configuration variable (which is mentioned in git-fmt-merge-msg(1) man page, but it is a plumbing command), and merge.verbosity configuration variable (so there is a place to make reference from "Environment Variables" section of git(7) man page) to the git-merge(1) man page. Also describe GIT_MERGE_VERBOSITY environment. The configuration variable merge.verbosity and environment variable GIT_MERGE_VERBOSITY were introduced in commit 8c3275ab, which also documented configuration variable but not environment variable.
