git.txt: add list of guides

Not all man5/man7 guides are mentioned in the 'git(1)' documentation,
which makes the missing ones somewhat hard to find.

Add a list of the guides to git(1) by leveraging the existing
`Documentation/cmd-list.perl` script to generate a file `cmds-guide.txt`
which gets included in git.txt.

Also, do not hard-code the manual section '1'. Instead, use a regex so
that the manual section is discovered from the first line of each
`git*.txt` file.

This addition was hinted at in 1b81d8cb19 (help: use command-list.txt
for the source of guides, 2018-05-20).
