completion: add and use --list-cmds=alias
By providing aliases via --list-cmds=, we could simplify command collection code in the script. We only issue one git command. Before this patch that is "git config", after it's "git --list-cmds=". In "git help" completion case we actually reduce one "git" process (for getting guides) but that call was added in this series so it does not really count. A couple of bash functions are removed because they are not needed anymore. __git_compute_all_commands() and $__git_all_commands stay because they are still needed for completing pager.* config and without "alias" group, the result is still cacheable. There is a slight (good) change in _git_help() with this patch: before "git help <tab>" shows external commands (as in _not_ part of git) as well as part of $__git_all_commands. We have finer control over command listing now and can exclude that because we can't provide a man page for external commands anyway.
