[PATCH v2 6/6] fsmonitor: add a sample query-fsmonitor hook script for Watchman

This hook script integrates the new fsmonitor capabilities of git with
the cross platform Watchman file watching service. To use the script:

Download and install Watchman from https://facebook.github.io/watchman/
and instruct Watchman to watch your working directory for changes
('watchman watch-project /usr/src/git').

Rename the sample integration hook from query-fsmonitor.sample to

Configure git to use the extension ('git config core.fsmonitor true')
and optionally turn on the untracked cache for optimal performance
('git config core.untrackedcache true').
