Allow multiple "git_path()" uses

This allows you to maintain a few filesystem pathnames concurrently, by
simply replacing the single static "pathname" buffer with a LRU of four

We did exactly the same thing with sha1_to_hex(), for pretty much exactly
the same reason. Sometimes you want to use two pathnames, and while it's
easy enough to xstrdup() them, why not just do the LU buffer thing.
