Patch (mostly indentation changes)

Put global options in a separate block in help output.

* subversion/libsvn_subr/opt.c
  (print_command_info2): Put a "Global options:" heading above
   global options. (Small change, but lots of reindentation.)

* subversion/tests/cmdline/getopt_tests_data/svn_help_log_switch_stdout
