The current git fetcher environment and proxy handling between bitbake,
base.bbclass, and oe-buildenv-internal has become stale and is largely
non-functional. The crux of the problem is that GIT_CONFIG is no longer honored
by anything other than the git-config command, rendering the GIT_CORE_CONFIG and
the assocaited proxy handling routines obsolete.

(the bitbake patches have been merged and dropped from this series)

The GIT_PROXY_COMMAND, ALL_PROXY, and NO_PROXY environment variables are more
than adequate for storing the required information to manage proxies with a git
helper script.

These patches series aggressively removes the old stuff, fixes up some missing
environment settings, and adds a new git proxy handling script.

Note: These patches DO NOT address the bitbake gui builder.py references to git
      proxy settings!

I felt this series was best viewed as a whole, so I'm sending it to poky AND
oe-core. Anything else seemed too likely to result in confusion, missing
context, and lots and lots of redundant discussion.

V2: Updates to the new oe-git-proxy script from feedback received
    Split out meta-yocto changes
    Split out removal of old scripts
    Minor commit log corrections

V3: Fedora 18 dropped BSD nc support, so add a patch converting oe-git-proxy
    to use socat which is broadly available. HTTP proxy still remains untested.

The following changes since commit 20b4dcace222d6b1d659a8813b4affad075ec0c6:

  dbus-native: Don't install dbus-launch (2013-02-08 14:50:38 +0000)
