The $test_case variable hasn't been used since
decd3c0c28 ("t0050-*.sh: mark the rename (case change) test as
passing", 2014-11-28) when its last user went away.

Let's remove the "say" as well, since it's obvious from subsequent
output that we're testing on a case sensitive filesystem.

Am I misunderstanding the message? I think it reports properties of
the test environment. And the tests do run on case-insensitive
filesystems. IMO, the message should be kept.

It's obvious from subsequent output whether the FS is case sensitive or
not, so I thought it was redundant to keep this report at the top since
we didn't have the variable setting anymore.

There are test cases that do different things depending on whether the CASE_INSENSITIVE_FS prerequisite is set. I think it was the intent to report whether it is set and not whether one or the other value of the (now unused) variable is used somewhere.

BTW, the message texts do not show which variant is taken (these are without your patch):

On Windows:

t>sh t0050-filesystem.sh
will test on a case insensitive filesystem
will test on a filesystem lacking symbolic links
ok 1 - detection of case insensitive filesystem during repo init
ok 2 - detection of filesystem w/o symlink support during repo init
ok 3 - setup case tests
ok 4 - rename (case change)
ok 5 - merge (case change)
not ok 6 - add (with different case) # TODO known breakage
ok 7 - setup unicode normalization tests
ok 8 - rename (silent unicode normalization)
ok 9 - merge (silent unicode normalization)
# still have 1 known breakage(s)
# passed all remaining 8 test(s)
1..9

On Linux:

t@master:1002> ./t0050-filesystem.sh
ok 1 - detection of case insensitive filesystem during repo init
ok 2 - detection of filesystem w/o symlink support during repo init
ok 3 - setup case tests
ok 4 - rename (case change)
ok 5 - merge (case change)
ok 6 # skip add (with different case) (missing CASE_INSENSITIVE_FS)
ok 7 - setup unicode normalization tests
ok 8 - rename (silent unicode normalization)
ok 9 - merge (silent unicode normalization)
# passed all 9 test(s)
1..9

I'd even argue that there should be messages on Linux, too.
