rev->diffopt.stat_width is set to -1 at this point (I assumed by
rev->cmd_log_init_defaults(), but didn't go digging).
The patched version certainly gives the <= 2.16.* behaviour with
--stat and still restricts stat lines to 72 characters without.

Sure. Only today was the first time I had a look at the git sources,
so some guidance would be most appreciated.
Should I add a function to t/t4014-format-patch.sh and just put
something longer than a/file for the expect template?
