t4008: correct stale comments
A complete rewrite of a single file was originally designed to be expressed as a deletion immediately followed by a creation of the same file, and the comments in the test updated here were written to reflect that design decision made in f345b0a0 (Add -B flag to diff-* brothers., 2005-05-30). However, we later realized that a complete rewrite is merely how a textual diff should be represented at 366175ef (Rework -B output., 2005-06-19), and updated the actual tests. But we forgot to update the introductory text while doing so. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
