[PATCH] test-lib: unset trace2 parent envvars

The trace2 subsystem can inherit certain information from parent
processes via environment variables; e.g., the parent command name and
session ID. This allows trace2 to note when a command is the child
process of another Git process, and to adjust various pieces of output
accordingly.

This behavior breaks certain tests that examine trace2 output when the
tests run as a child of another git process, such as in `git rebase -x
"make test"`.

While we could fix this by unsetting the relevant variables in the
affected tests (currently t0210, t0211, t0212, and t6421), this would
leave other tests vulnerable to similar breakage if new test cases are
added which inspect trace2 output. So fix this in general by unsetting
GIT_TRACE2_PARENT_NAME and GIT_TRACE2_PARENT_SID in test-lib.sh.
