format-patch: take sequence of ranges.
This enhances set of revs you can give format-patch. Originally, format-patch took either one rev, or two revs: format-patch rev1 format-patch rev1 rev2 The first format was a short-hand for "format-patch rev1 HEAD" (i.e. rev2==HEAD). What this meant was to find commits that are in branch rev2 that has not been merged to branch rev1. The above notation is still supported, but now it takes sequence of "from1..to1 from2..to2 ...". In short, the second format has become a short-hand for "format-patch rev1..rev2". Commits in to1 but not in from1, to2 but not in from2, ... are formatted as emailable patches. With this, cherry-picking from other branch can be written as: git-format-patch -k --stdout master..branch1 master..branch2 | git-am -k -3 which is generally faster than traditional cherry-pick (which always did 3-way merge) if patches apply cleanly, and still falls back on 3-way merge if some of them do not.
