In many config-related tests it's common to check if a config variable
has expected value and we want to print the differences when the test
fails. Doing it the normal way is three lines of shell code. Let's add
a function do to all this (and a little more).

This function has uses outside t1300 as well but I'm not going to
convert them all. And it will be used in the next commit where
per-worktree config feature is introduced.

Minor: maybe say that "-C <dir>" changes to <dir> for the git-config invocation.

Should be: $(git -C xyz config core.bar)

Style:

    if test "$1" = "-C"
    then
        ...

If $1 starts with a hyphen, 'echo' might try interpreting it as an
option. Use printf instead:

    printf "%s\n" "$1" &&

Please choose names other than "actual" and "expected" since those are
likely to clobber files of the same name which the test has set up
itself. (Or, at the very least, document that this function clobbers
those files -- but using better filenames is preferable.)

This doesn't describe very well the function's parameters: $1
specifies the expected value (as opposed to the file containing the
expected value), and the rest can be all kinds of 'git config'
options, not just a second argument with the config key; e.g. see call
in the above hunk.

Perheps only a brief description and a usage string like this would
sufficiently cover everything?

  # Check that the given config key has the expected value.
  #
  #   test_cmp_config [-C <dir>] <expected-value>
  #                   [<git-config-options>...] <config-key>

I think this comment should outright say that "is a better alternative
to", because it provides useful output on failure, and because it
doesn't hide 'git config's exit code.

Note that this second point does make a bit of a difference:

  test_cmp_config "" nonexisting.variable

would fail, because

  $ git config nonexisting.variable ; echo $?
  1

and the &&-chain.  However,

  test "" = "$(git config nonexisting.variable)"

would still succeed, because the non-zero exit code is ignored.

I consider this a benefit, as it will protect us from a typo in the
name of a set but empty variable, even though we won't get any error
message.

Nit: unnecessary empty line.

I think you could now safely declare GD as local.  The test balloon
01d3a526ad (t0000: check whether the shell supports the "local"
keyword, 2017-10-26) has been out there for 4 releases / almost a
year, and we haven't heard about any issues, and the upcoming hash
translation test helpers use 'local' as well.
