[PATCH v2] range-diff: always pass at least minimal diff options




Commit d8981c3f88 ("format-patch: do not let its diff-options affect
--range-diff", 2018-11-30) taught `show_range_diff()` to accept a
NULL-pointer as an indication that it should use its own "reasonable
default". That fixed a regression from a5170794 ("Merge branch
'ab/range-diff-no-patch'", 2018-11-18), but unfortunately it introduced
a regression of its own.

In particular, it means we forget the `file` member of the diff options,
so rather than placing a range-diff in the cover-letter, we write it to
stdout. In order to fix this, rewrite the two callers adjusted by
d8981c3f88 to instead create a "dummy" set of diff options where they
only fill in which file to use.

Plus, turn off coloring to make sure we don't write any color codes.
Maybe we could do `opts.use_color = opts.file != stdout`, but for now,
I'd much rather always write uncolored output than write color codes
where there shouldn't be any.

Modify and extend the existing tests to try and verify that the right
contents end up in the right place.

Don't revert `show_range_diff()`, i.e., let it keep accepting NULL.
Rather than removing what is dead code and figuring out it isn't
actually dead and we've broken 2.20, just leave it for now.

Here's another attempt at fixing this recent regression.
