grep: NUL terminate input from a file

Internally "git grep" runs regexec(3) that expects its input string
to be NUL terminated. When searching inside blob data, read_sha1_file()
automatically gives such a buffer, but builtin-grep.c forgot to put
the NUL at the end, even though it allocated enough space for it.

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
