t0008: document test_expect_success_multi

test_expect_success_multi() helper function warrants some explanation,
since at first sight it may seem like generic test framework plumbing,
but is in fact specific to testing check-ignore, and allows more
thorough testing of the various output formats without significantly
increase the size of t0008.

# - test name
# - output to expect from -v / --verbose mode
# - code to run (should invoke test_check_ignore)
