git-daemon: set REMOTE_ADDR to client address
This allows hooks like pre-receive to look at the client's IP address. Of course the IP address can't be used to get strong security; git-daemon isn't the right thing to use if you need that. However, basic IP address checking can be good enough in some situations. REMOTE_ADDR is the same environment variable used to communicate the client's address to CGI scripts.
