grep: allow to use textconv filters
Recently and not so recently, we made sure that log/grep type operations use textconv filters when a userfacing diff would do the same: ef90ab6 (pickaxe: use textconv for -S counting, 2012-10-28) b1c2f57 (diff_grep: use textconv buffers for add/deleted files, 2012-10-28) 0508fe5 (combine-diff: respect textconv attributes, 2011-05-23) "git grep" currently does not use textconv filters at all, that is neither for displaying the match and context nor for the actual grepping, even when requested by --textconv. Introduce an option "--textconv" which makes git grep use any configured textconv filters for grepping and output purposes. It is off by default.
