parse_value in config.c has a static buffer of 1024 bytes that it
parse the value into. This can sometimes be a problem when a
config file contains very long values.

It's particularly amusing that git-config already is able to write
such files, so it should probably be able to read them as well.

Fix this by using a strbuf instead of a fixed-size buffer.
