Obviously correct.  Thanks.

At this point in the codeflow, the .flags field is not touched by
parse_options() yet, the configuration codepath only touches that
field for REBASE_DIFFSTAT, and because REBASE_DIFFSTAT is not 0,
"[rebase] stat = no", which would want only the REBASE_DIFFSTAT bit
cleared in the word, can afford to instead assign 0 to the whole
word without causing any damage, which is funny way for this bug to
be hidden for a long time...
