Merge branch 'cb/path-owner-check-with-sudo-plus'

"sudo git foo" used to consider a repository owned by the original
user a safe one to access; it now also considers a repository owned
by root a safe one, too (after all, if an attacker can craft a
malicious repository owned by root, the box is 0wned already).

* cb/path-owner-check-with-sudo-plus:
  git-compat-util: allow root to access both SUDO_UID and root owned

As explained, Git only allows you to access repositories owned by
yourself, i.e. the user who is running Git, by default. When Git
is running as 'root' in a non Windows platform that provides sudo,
however, git checks the SUDO_UID environment variable that sudo creates
and will allow access to the uid recorded as its value instead.
however, git checks the SUDO_UID environment variable that sudo creates
and will allow access to the uid recorded as its value in addition to
the id from 'root'.
This is to make it easy to perform a common sequence during installation
"make && sudo make install". A git process running under 'sudo' runs as
'root' but the 'sudo' command exports the environment variable to record
which id the original user has.
If that is not what you would prefer and want git to only trust
repositories that are owned by root instead, then you must remove
repositories that are owned by root instead, then you can remove
the `SUDO_UID` variable from root's environment before invoking git.
