[PATCH] doc: update diff-format.txt for removed ellipses in --raw




Since 7cb6ac1e4b ("diff: diff_aligned_abbrev: remove ellipsis after
abbreviated SHA-1 value", 2017-12-03), the "--raw" format of diff
does not add ellipses in an attempt to align the output, but the
documentation was not updated to reflect this.

The GIT_PRINT_SHA1_ELLIPSIS environment variable can be used, for now,
to bring back the old output format, but that is already documented in
git.txt, so I am not mentioning it here.
