Git v2.34.1 Release Notes

This release is primarily to fix a handful of regressions in Git 2.34.

Fixes since v2.34

 * "git grep" looking in a blob that has non-UTF8 payload was
   completely broken when linked with certain versions of PCREv2
   library in the latest release.

 * "git pull" with any strategy when the other side is behind us
   should succeed as it is a no-op, but doesn't.

 * An earlier change in 2.34.0 caused JGit application (that abused
   GIT_EDITOR mechanism when invoking "git config") to get stuck with
   a SIGTTOU signal; it has been reverted.

 * An earlier change that broke .gitignore matching has been reverted.

 * SubmittingPatches document gained a syntactically incorrect mark-up,
   which has been corrected.
