verify_dotfile(): reject .git case-insensitively

We do not allow ".git" to enter into the index as a path
component, because checking out the result to the working
tree may causes confusion for subsequent git commands.
However, on case-insensitive file systems, ".Git" or ".GIT"
is the same. We should catch and prevent those, too.

Note that technically we could allow this for repos on
case-sensitive filesystems. But there's not much point. It's
unlikely that anybody cares, and it creates a repository
that is unexpectedly non-portable to other systems.
