Subject: [PATCH] grep: add -r/--[no-]recursive

Recognize -r and --recursive as synonyms for --max-depth=-1 for
compatibility with GNU grep; it's still the default for git grep.

This also adds --no-recursive as synonym for --max-depth=0 for free,
which is welcome for completeness and consistency.

Fix the description for --max-depth, while we're at it -- negative
values other than -1 actually disable recursion, i.e. they are
equivalent to --max-depth=0.
