Turn `git serve` into a test helper
The `git serve` built-in was introduced in ed10cb952d31 (serve: introduce git-serve, 2018-03-15) as a backend to serve Git protocol v2, probably originally intended to be spawned by `git upload-pack`. However, in the version that the protocol v2 patches made it into core Git, `git upload-pack` calls the `serve()` function directly instead of spawning `git serve`; The only reason in life for `git serve` to survive as a built-in command is to provide a way to test the protocol v2 functionality. Meaning that it does not even have to be a built-in that is installed with end-user facing Git installations, but it can be a test helper instead. Let's make it so.
