credential: convert "url" attribute into its parsed subparts

The git-credential command requires that you feed it a
broken-down credential, which means that the client needs to
parse a URL itself. Since we have our own URL-parsing
routines, we can easily allow the caller to just give us the
URL as-is, saving them some code.

The credential's password, if we are asking it to be stored.
When this special attribute is read by `git credential`, the
value is parsed as a URL and treated as if its constituent parts
were read (e.g., `url=` would behave as if
`protocol=https` and `` had been provided). This
can help callers avoid parsing URLs themselves. Note that any
components which are missing from the URL (e.g., there is no
username in the example above) will be set to empty; if you want
to provide a URL and override some attributes, provide the URL
attribute first, followed by any overrides.
