built-in add -p: respect the `interactive.singlekey` config setting
The Perl version of `git add -p` supports this config setting to allow users to input commands via single characters (as opposed to having to press the <Enter> key afterwards). This is an opt-in feature because it requires Perl packages (Term::ReadKey and Term::Cap, where it tries to handle an absence of the latter package gracefully) to work. Note that at least on Ubuntu, that Perl package is not installed by default (it needs to be installed via `sudo apt-get install libterm-readkey-perl`), so this feature is probably not used a whole lot. In C, we obviously do not have these packages available, but we just introduced `read_single_keystroke()` that is similar to what Term::ReadKey provides, and we use that here.
