Patch implementing the feature.

Since migration of FreeBSD repos to git many people complained about missing
support for expansion of the $FreeBSD$ tags. This patch builds upon existing
ident functionality in Git allowing custom ident to be configured, i.e.:


$ echo '* ident=FreeBSD' >> .gitattributes
$ git add .gitattributes
$ git commit .gitattributes

Next time sources are checked tags are going to be expanded.

Patch will be upstreamed as a pull request to the git project.
