config: provide access to the current line number
Users are nowadays trained to see message from CLI tools in the form <file>:<lno>: … To be able to give such messages when notifying the user about configurations in any config file, it is currently only possible to get the file name (if the value originates from a file to begin with) via `current_config_name()`. Now it is also possible to query the current line number for the configuration. Signed-off-by: Bert Wesarg <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
