t5501-*.sh: Fix url passed to clone in setup test

In particular, the url passed to git-clone has an extra '/' given
after the 'file://' schema prefix, thus:

git clone --reference=original "file:///$(pwd)/original one

Once the prefix is removed, the remainder of the url looks something
like "//home/ramsay/git/t/...", which is then interpreted as an
network path. This then results in a "Permission denied" error, like

ramsay $ ls //home
ls: cannot access //home: No such host or network path
ramsay $ ls //home/ramsay
ls: cannot access //home/ramsay: Permission denied
ramsay $

In order to fix the problem, we simply remove the extraneous '/'
character from the url.
