hex: introduce functions to print arbitrary hashes
Currently, we have functions that turn an arbitrary SHA-1 value or an
object ID into hex format, either using a static buffer or with a
user-provided buffer. Add variants of these functions that can handle
an arbitrary hash algorithm, specified by constant. Update the
documentation as well.
While we're at it, remove the "extern" declaration from this family of
functions, since it's not needed and our style now recommends against
We use the variant taking the algorithm structure pointer as the
internal variant, since taking an algorithm pointer is the easiest way
to handle all of the variants in use.
Note that we maintain these functions because there are hashes which
must change based on the hash algorithm in use but are not object IDs
(such as pack checksums).
