tools: git hooks: drop "submitted by" from commit template
With the switch to git, we should strive to properly attribute every commit appropriately with the metadata that's provided to do so. In this case, the submitter should be recorded via the author metadata. Committing an arbitrary patch, one can set it as such: git commit --author="John Smith <smith@example.com>" Reviewed-by: emaste Differential-Revision: https://reviews.freebsd.org/D28069
