Rename ONE_FILESYSTEM to DISCOVERY_ACROSS_FILESYSTEM
If a missing ONE_FILESYSTEM defaults to true, the only users who set this variable set it to false to tell git not to limit the discovery to one filesystem; there are too many negations in one sentence to make a simple panda brain dizzy. Use the variable GIT_DISCOVERY_ACROSS_FILESYSTEM that changes the behaviour from the default "limit to one filesystem" to "cross the boundary as I ask you to"; makes the semantics much more straight forward.

-'GIT_ONE_FILESYSTEM'::
+'GIT_DISCOVERY_ACROSS_FILESYSTEM'::
When run in a directory that does not have ".git" repository
directory, git tries to find such a directory in the parent
directories to find the top of the working tree, but by default it
does not cross filesystem boundaries. This environment variable
- can be set to false value ("false" or zero) to tell git not to
- stop at filesystem boundaries. Like 'GIT_CEILING_DIRECTORIES',
- this will not affect an explicit respository directory set via
- 'GIT_DIR' or on the command line.
