doc: mention transfer data leaks in more places
The "SECURITY" section of the gitnamespaces(7) man page described two ways for a client to steal data from a server that wasn't intended to be shared. Similar attacks can be performed by a server on a client, so adapt the section to cover both directions and add it to the git-fetch(1), git-pull(1), and git-push(1) man pages. Also add references to this section from the documentation of server configuration options that attempt to control data leakage but may not be fully effective.
