Because I plan to use the patch on top of v2.19.1 (until the next major
release, v2.20, is made), that's also where I applied and tested the patch.

With master @ a4b8ab5363a3, this patch targets show_diffstat(). At
v2.19.1, commit fa5b7ea670f4 ("format-patch: allow additional generated
content in make_cover_letter()", 2018-07-23) had not occurred yet, so
there the subject code still lived in make_cover_letter(). On my end,
git-am has applied the hunk to make_cover_letter() seamlessly.

I tested the patch with "--stat=1000 --stat-graph-width=20", formatting
an edk2 series that contained commit 1ed6498c4a02
("UefiCpuPkg/CommonFeature: Skip locking when the feature is disabled",
2018-11-07). The long pathname
"UefiCpuPkg/Library/CpuCommonFeaturesLib/FeatureControl.c" is no longer
truncated in the cumulative diffstat, in the cover letter.

I didn't try to run the test suite (I wasn't conscious of it anyway); I
built & installed git with

  nice make -j4 prefix=... all doc info
  nice make prefix=... install install-doc install-html install-info

I also wasn't watching the make log. So if those make targets don't
include the test suite, then I didn't exercise the new test case.

Thank you!
