attr: reformat git_attr_set_direction() function
Move the 'git_attr_set_direction()' up to be closer to the variables that it modifies as well as a small formatting by renaming the variable 'new' to 'new_direction' so that it is more descriptive. Update the comment about how 'direction' is used to read the state of the world. It should be noted that callers of 'git_attr_set_direction()' should ensure that other threads are not making calls into the attribute system until after the call to 'git_attr_set_direction()' completes. This function essentially acts as reset button for the attribute system and should be handled with care.

- * NEEDSWORK: these two are tricky. The callers assume there is a
- * single, system-wide global state "where we read attributes from?"
- * and when the state is flipped by calling git_attr_set_direction(),
- * attr_stack is discarded so that subsequent attr_check will lazily
- * read from the right place. And they do not know or care who called
- * by them uses the attribute subsystem, hence have no knowledge of
- * existing git_attr_check instances or future ones that will be
- * created).
- *
- * Probably we need a thread_local that holds these two variables,
- * and a list of git_attr_check instances (which need to be maintained
- * by hooking into git_attr_check_alloc(), git_attr_check_initl(), and
- * git_attr_check_clear(). Then git_attr_set_direction() updates the
- * fields in that thread_local for these two variables, iterate over
- * all the active git_attr_check instances and discard the attr_stack
- * they hold. Yuck, but it sounds doable.
+ * Callers into the attribute system assume there is a single, system-wide

+ * calling git_attr_set_direction(), the stack frames that have been
+ * constructed need to be discarded so so that subsequent calls into the
+ * attribute system will lazily read from the right place. Since changing
+ * direction causes a global paradigm shift, it should not ever be called while
+ * another thread could potentially be calling into the attribute system.
