Remove various redundant or obsolete code from the test_create_repo()
function, and split up its use in test-lib.sh from what tests need
from it.

This leave us with a pass-through wrapper for "git init" in
test-lib-functions.sh, in test-lib.sh we have the same, except for
needing to redirect stdout/stderr, and emitting an error ourselves if
it fails. We don't need to error() ourselves when test_create_repo()
is invoked, as the invocation will be a part of a test's "&&"-chain.

Everything below this paragraph is a detailed summary of the history
of test_create_repo() explaining why it's safe to remove the various
things it was doing:

 1. "mkdir -p" isn't needed because "git init" itself will create
    leading directories if needed.

 2. Since we're now a simple wrapper for "git init" we don't need to
    check that we have only one argument. If someone wants to run
    "test_create_repo --bare x" that's OK.

 3. We won't ever hit that "Cannot setup test environment"

    Checking the test environment sanity when doing "git init" dates
    back to eea420693be (t0000: catch trivial pilot errors.,
    2005-12-10) and 2ccd2027b01 (trivial: check, if t/trash directory
    was successfully created, 2006-01-05).

    We can also see it in another form a bit later in my own
    0d314ce834d (test-lib: use subshell instead of cd $new && .. && cd
    $old, 2010-08-30).

    But since 2006f0adaee (t/test-lib: make sure Git has already been
    built, 2012-09-17) we already check if we have a built git

    The one thing this was testing after that 2012 change was that
    we'd just built "git", but not "git-init", but since
    3af4c7156c4 (tests: respect GIT_TEST_INSTALLED when initializing
    repositories, 2018-11-12) we invoke "git", not "git-init".

    So all of that's been checked already, and we don't need to
    re-check it here.

 4. We don't need to move .git/hooks out of the way.

    That dates back to c09a69a83e3 (Disable hooks during tests.,
    2005-10-16), since then hooks became disabled by default in
    f98f8cbac01 (Ship sample hooks with .sample suffix, 2008-06-24).

    So the hooks were already disabled by default, but as can be seen
    from "mkdir .git/hooks" changes various tests needed to re-setup
    that directory. Now they no longer do.

 5. Since we don't need to move the .git/hooks directory we don't need
    the subshell here either.

    See 0d314ce834 for when the subshell use got introduced for the
    convenience of not having to "cd" back and forth while setting up
    the hooks.

 6. We can drop the --template argument and instead rely on the
    GIT_TEMPLATE_DIR set to the same path earlier in test-lib.sh. See
    8683a45d669 (Introduce GIT_TEMPLATE_DIR, 2006-12-19)

 7. We only needed that ">&3 2>&4" redirection when invoked from

    We could still invoke test_create_repo() there, but as the
    invocation is now trivial and we don't have a good reason to use
    test_create_repo() elsewhere let's call "git init" there

 8. We didn't need to resolve "git" as
    "${GIT_TEST_INSTALLED:-$GIT_EXEC_PATH}/git$X" in test_create_repo(),
    even for the use of test-lib.sh

    PATH is already set up in test-lib.sh to start with
    test_create_repo() (now "git init") is called.. So we can simply
    run "git" and rely on the PATH lookup choosing the right
