send-pack.c: add config push.useBitmaps

Reachability bitmaps are designed to speed up the "counting objects"
phase of generating a pack during a clone or fetch. They are not
optimized for Git clients sending a small topic branch via "git push".
In some cases (see [1]), using reachability bitmaps during "git push"
can cause significant performance regressions.

Add a new "push.useBitmaps" configuration variable to allow users to
tell "git push" not to use bitmaps. We already have "pack.bitmaps"
that controls the use of bitmaps, but a separate configuration variable
allows the reachability bitmaps to still be used in other areas,
such as "git upload-pack", while disabling it only for "git push".
