gitattributes: drop support for GIT_ATTR_NOGLOBAL
test-lib sets $HOME to protect against pollution from user settings, so setting GIT_ATTR_NOGLOBAL would be redundant. Simplify by eliminating support for that environment variable altogether. GIT_ATTR_NOGLOBAL was introduced in v1.7.4-rc0~208^2 (Add global and system-wide gitattributes, 2010-09-01) as an undocumented feature for use by the test suite. It never ended up being used (neither within git.git nor in other projects). This patch does not affect GIT_ATTR_NOSYSTEM, which should still be useful.
