[PATCH 2/2] Update git-daemon's documentation wrt. new options

From: Petr Baudis <pasky@suse.cz>
Date: 2005-10-21 10:28:45
New options --timeout, --init-timeout, --export-all and whitelist support
were added to git-daemon, but noone bothered to also add the proper
documentation. This patch aims to fix that.
