[RFC PATCH 0/1] Expand abbreviated filters

NOTE: this patch is based on top of md/list-objects-filter-by-depth

Currently, git clients pass filter specs verbatim over the network and
to subprocesses. We support various numeric abbreviations for parameters
on these limits (via git_parse_ulong()), but other implementations may
not support the same abbreviations (or may support them differently;
e.g., should "1k" == 1000 or 1024?). It would be better to only pass
fully-expanded numbers in this case, and keep the expansion logic
completely on the client side.

This patch updates the protocol-v2 doc to specify that clients MUST
expand abbreviations in filter specifications before passing them to
other processes. It adds a new function
"expand_list_objects_filter_spec()" in list-objects-filter-options.c
that implements the expansion logic, and updates users of the
filter_spec field to instead expand the spec first.
