When a user queries config values with --show-origin, often it's
difficult to determine what the actual "scope" (local, global, etc.) of
a given value is based on just the origin file.

Teach 'git config' the '--show-scope' option to print the scope of all
displayed config values.  Note that we should never see anything of
"submodule" scope as that is only ever used by submodule-config.c when
parsing the '.gitmodules' file.

Style: the outermost opening and closing parentheses of a functiond
definition sit on their own lines by themselves.  Same for the next
one.

Makes me wonder if this wants to be done via a table, which would
later allow a parser to map in the other direction, taking a string
and returning the corresponding enum, more easily (imagine a yet to
be invented feature to "list config settings for only this scope").

Shouldn't one of these show scope instead of origin?  I wonder how
the tests I see later in the patch could have passed with this.

These that set scope for individual sources, not just during the
normal sequence, are new in this round, and I think it is an
improvement.

I was thinking the same but then I realized such an option already exists,
--local and company.

Oof, that was a blunder... I think this passes the tests because none of them
actually hits `format_config()` only `show_all_config()` so I'll definitely add
a test case for this. (and fix it while I'm at it)

I definitely got a little too excited to get this patch in, so I
definitely apologize for that,
but thanks for the review.
