git-codereview: use --path option of git config to expand ~

This change largely reverts CL 115576, and applies a simpler version.
It uses the --path option of git config to achieve equivalent behavior.

The --path option is available as far back as git 1.7.0, according to
https://git-scm.com/docs/git-config/1.7.0, making it safe to rely on:

	The type specifier can be [...] --path, which does some path expansion
	(see --path below). If no type specifier is passed, no checks or
	transformations are performed on the value.

	--path
	  git-config will expand leading ~ to the value of $HOME, and ~user
	  to the home directory for the specified user.
