[PATCH 8/9] range-diff: use a hunk callback

When we count the lines in a diff, we don't actually care about the
contents of each line. By using a hunk callback, we tell xdiff that it
does not need to even bother generating a hunk header line, saving a
small amount of work.

Arguably we could even ignore the hunk headers completely, since we're
just computing a cost function between patches. But doing it this way
maintains the exact same behavior before and after.

This one might be going overboard. It can be dropped without affecting
any of the other patches.
