[PATCH] range-diff: add a --no-patch option to show a summary




Add a --no-patch option which shows which changes got removed, added
or moved etc., without showing the diff associated with them.

This allows for using range-diff as a poor man's "shortlog" for
force-pushed branches to see what changed without getting into the
details of what specifically. E.g. diffing the latest forced-push to
"pu" gives us:

    $ ./git-range-diff --no-patch b58974365b...711aaa392f | head -n 10
     -:  ---------- >  1:  b613de67c4 diff: differentiate error handling in parse_color_moved_ws
    28:  c731affab0 !  2:  23c4bbe28e build: link with curl-defined linker flags
     -:  ---------- >  3:  14f74d5907 git-worktree.txt: correct linkgit command name
     -:  ---------- >  4:  29d51e214c sequencer.c: remove a stray semicolon
     -:  ---------- >  5:  b7845cebc0 tree-walk.c: fix overoptimistic inclusion in :(exclude) matching
     -:  ---------- >  6:  1a550529b1 t/t7510-signed-commit.sh: Add %GP to custom format checks
     -:  ---------- >  7:  1e690847d1 t/t7510-signed-commit.sh: add signing subkey to Eris Discordia key
     9:  d13ecb7d81 !  8:  d8ad847421 Add a base implementation of SHA-256 support
    10:  3f0382eef8 =  9:  cdae1d391c sha256: add an SHA-256 implementation using libgcrypt
    11:  2422fd4227 = 10:  7d81aa0857 hash: add an SHA-256 implementation using OpenSSL

That would print a total of 44 lines of output, but the full
range-diff output with --patch is 460 lines.

I thought of implementing --stat too. It would be neat if passing
DIFF_FORMAT_DIFFSTAT just worked, but using that shows the underlying
implementation details of how range-diff works, instead of a useful
diffstat. So I'll leave that to a future change. Such a feature should
be something like a textual summary of the --patch output itself,
e.g.:

    N hunks, X insertions(+), Y deletions(-)

This change doesn't update git-format-patch with a --no-patch
option. That can be added later similar to how format-patch first
learned --range-diff, and then --creation-factor in
8631bf1cdd ("format-patch: add --creation-factor tweak for
--range-diff", 2018-07-22). I don't see why anyone would want this for
format-patch, it pretty much defeats the point of range-diff.
