[PATCH] Documentation/config.txt: Fix documentation of colour config tweaks.

From: Mark Wooding <mdw@distorted.org.uk>
Date: 2007-01-29 02:17:36
  * The description of valid colour specifications was rather
    incomplete, so fix it so that it actually describes colour specs as
    accepted by color_parse().

  * The list of colour items allowed in color.diff.BLAH was missing the
    `commit' and `whitespace' entries.

Can anyone tell that I've been messing with Git's colour output recently? ;-)
