tmp-objdir: quote paths we add to alternates

Commit 722ff7f8 (receive-pack: quarantine objects until
pre-receive accepts, 2016-10-03) regressed pushes to
repositories with colon (or semi-colon in Windows in them)
because it adds the repository's main object directory to
the colon as a delimiter, not as part of the path, and
index-pack is unable to find objects which it needs to
resolve deltas.

The previous commit introduced a quoting mechanism for the
alternates list; let's use it here to cover this case. We'll
avoid quoting when we can, though. This alternate setup is
also used when calling hooks, so it's possible that the user
may call older git implementations which don't understand
the quoting mechanism. By quoting only when necessary, this
setup will continue to work unless the user _also_ has a
repository whose path contains the delimiter.
