Ship sample hooks with .sample suffix
We used to mark hooks we ship as samples by making them unexecutable, but some filesystems cannot tell what is executable and what is not. This makes it much more explicit. The hooks are suffixed with .sample (but now are made executable), so enabling it is still one step operation (instead of "chmod +x $hook", you would do "mv $hook.sample $hook") but now they won't get accidentally enabled on systems without executable bit.

-# An example hook script to check the commit log message.
-# Called by git-commit with one argument, the name of the file
-# that has the commit message. The hook should exit with non-zero
-# status after issuing an appropriate message if it wants to stop the
-# commit. The hook is allowed to edit the commit message file.
-# To enable this hook, make this file executable.
-# Uncomment the below to add a Signed-off-by line to the message.
-# Doing this in a hook is a bad idea in general, but the prepare-commit-msg
-# hook is more suited to it.
