[PATCH 0/2] Allow difftool to be run outside of Git worktrees




It was reported in https://github.com/git-for-windows/git/issues/2123 that 
git difftool --no-index fails to work outside worktrees, even if it should
work.

I fear this is a regression I introduced over two years ago (!) when I
converted the Perl script to C.

At least now that I know about the bug, I can fix it.

  difftool: remove obsolete (and misleading) comment
  difftool: allow running outside Git worktrees with --no-index
