With the introduction of the $GIT_COMMON_DIR variable, the
repository layout manual was changed to reflect the location for
many files in case the variable is set. While adding the new
locations, one typo snuck in regarding the location of the
'info/' folder, which is falsely claimed to reside at

Fix the typo to point to "$GIT_COMMON_DIR/info/" instead.
