filepattern is related to current directory too (e.g. "*.sh" from "t"
won't cover git-rebase.sh, ":/*.sh" does). Yes a patch to update
git-add.txt to use the term "pathspec" instead of "filepattern" would
be nice. A pointer to pathspec glossary could help discover
case-insensitive matching, negative matching..
