filter-branch: Export variable `workdir' for --commit-filter

According to `git help filter-branch':

--commit-filter <command>
...
You can use the _map_ convenience function in this filter,
and other convenience functions, too...
...

However, it turns out that `map' hasn't been usable because it depends
on the variable `workdir', which is not propogated to the environment
of the shell that runs the commit-filter <command> because the
shell is created via a simple-command rather than a compound-command
subshell:

@SHELL_PATH@ -c "$filter_commit" "git commit-tree" \
$(git write-tree) $parentstr < ../message > ../map/$commit ||
die "could not write rewritten commit"

One solution is simply to export `workdir'. However, it seems rather
heavy-handed to export `workdir' to the environments of all commands,
so instead this commit exports `workdir' for only the duration of the
shell command in question:

workdir=$workdir @SHELL_PATH@ -c "$filter_commit" "git commit-tree" \
$(git write-tree) $parentstr < ../message > ../map/$commit ||
die "could not write rewritten commit"
