This addition makes

    git grep -e "(integer|buffer)"

work as expected, when grep.patternType is set to "extended".

Should this

    git log --grep="(integer|buffer)"

also honor the same configuration variable?  If not, why not?

One more thing.  Currently you can say

    git log -E --grep="(integer|buffer)"

to ask for the ERE.  Should we also support -P to ask for pcre?  If
not, why not?
