Thanks both (Ævar and Dscho) for cleaning up my mess, and sorry for
not responding sooner; I only just found time to read the discussion
thread. One comment below...

Looking at diff.c:parse_diff_opt() and enable_patch_output(), rather
than introducing this new conditional, I'm thinking that a more
correct fix would be:

    opts.output_format |= DIFF_FORMAT_PATCH;

(note the '|=' operator). This would result in 'opts.output_format'
containing (DIFF_FORMAT_PATCH | DIFF_FORMAT_NO_OUTPUT), just as it did
prior to 73a834e9e2 when --no-patch was specified.
