[PATCH] emacs: notmuch-show-header-line: allow format-spec format

Subject: [PATCH] emacs: notmuch-show-header-line: allow format-spec format

From: jao

If a string value is assigned to notmuch-show-header-line, it's used
as a format string to be passed passed to format-spec with `%s`
substituted by the message's subject.  As before, t means displaying
the subject and nil not using any header line.
