git-help: add "help.format" config variable.
This config variable makes it possible to choose the default format used to display help. This format will be used only if no option like -a|--all|-i|--info|-m|--man|-w|--web is passed to "git-help". The following values are possible for this variable: - "man" --> "man" program is used - "info" --> "info" program is used - "web" --> "git-browse-help" is used By default we still show help using "man". This patch also adds -m|--man command line option to use "man" to allow overriding the "help.format" configuration variable. Note that this patch also revert some recent changes in "git-browse-help" because they prevented to look for config variables in the global configuration file.
