[PATCH] Documentation/git.txt: clarify that GIT_TRACE=/path appends




The current wording of the description of GIT_TRACE=/path/to/file
("... will try to write the trace messages into it") might be
misunderstood as "overwriting"; at least I interpreted it that way on
a cursory first read.

State it more explicitly that the trace messages are appended.

 Alternatively, if the variable is set to an absolute path

 Unsetting the variable, or setting it to empty, "0" or
 "false" (case insensitive) disables trace messages.
