From: Derrick Stolee <dstolee@microsoft.com>

When any `extensions.*` setting is configured, we newly ignore it unless
`core.repositoryFormatVersion` is set to a positive value.

This might be quite surprising, e.g. when calling `git config --worktree
[...]` elicits a warning that it requires
`extensions.worktreeConfig = true` when that setting _is_ configured
(but ignored because `core.repositoryFormatVersion` is unset).

Let's warn about this situation specifically, especially because there
might be already setups out there that configured a sparse worktree
using Git v2.27.0 (which does set `extensions.worktreeConfig` but not
`core.repositoryFormatVersion`) and users might want to work in those
setups with Git v2.28.0, too.

This warning is specifically placed inside an existing error message
for 'git config --worktree' that already fails if the repository format
version is not 1.
