lazily load core.sharedrepository

The "shared_repository" config is loaded as part of
check_repository_format_version, but it's not quite like the
other values we check there. Something like
core.repositoryformatversion only makes sense in per-repo
config, but core.sharedrepository can be set in a per-user
config (e.g., to make all "git init" invocations shared by

So it would make more sense as part of git_default_config.
Commit 457f06d6 (Introduce core.sharedrepository, 2005-12-22)

  [...]the config variable is set in the function which
  checks the repository format. If this were done in
  git_default_config instead, a lot of programs would need
  to be modified to call git_config(git_default_config)

This is still the case today, but we have one extra trick up
our sleeve. Now that we have the git_configset
infrastructure, it's not so expensive for us to ask for a
single value. So we can simply lazy-load it on demand.

This should be OK to do in general. There are some problems
with loading config before setup_git_directory() is called,
but we shouldn't be accessing the value before then (if we
were, then it would already be broken, as the variable would
not have been set by check_repository_format_version!). The
trickiest caller is git-init, but it handles the values
manually itself.
