The commit 40ce4160 "format-patch: allow --range-diff to apply to
a lone-patch" added the ability to see a range-diff as commentary
after the commit message of a single patch series (i.e. [PATCH]
instead of [PATCH X/N]). However, this functionality was not
covered by a test case.
Add a simple test case that checks that a range-diff is written as
commentary to the patch.

Aside from Junio's and Stefan's comments...
Patch 6/14 , in addition to checking that a solo patch contains an
interdiff, takes the extra step of checking that individual patches
_don't_ contain an interdiff when --cover-letter is used. I wonder if
the same should be done here, though I don't feel too strongly about
it. If you do go that route, it might make sense to move this test to
t4014 as neighbor to the --interdiff tests. The reason 10/14  added
the "git format-patch --range-diff" test to t3206 instead of t4014 was
so it could do a thorough check of the embedded range-diff by re-using
the specially crafted test repo set up by t3206. Your new test is much
looser, thus could be moved alongside the --interdiff tests. Not a big
deal, though. Either way is fine. Thanks for working on this.

That's a better way to test, especially with the translation. It would
be enough for my needs.
P.S. Resending because apparently I had HTML in the last response
