grep: add color.grep.matchcontext and color.grep.matchselected
The config option color.grep.match can be used to specify the highlighting color for matching strings. Add the options matchContext and matchSelected to allow different colors to be specified for matching strings in the context vs. in selected lines. This is similar to the ms and mc specifiers in GNU grep's environment variable GREP_COLORS. Tests are from Zoltan Klinger's earlier attempt to solve the same issue in a different way.
