[PATCH] The diff-raw format updates.
Update the diff-raw format as Linus and I discussed, except that it does not use sequence of underscore '_' letters to express nonexistence. All '0' mode is used for that purpose instead. The new diff-raw format can express rename/copy, and the earlier restriction that -M and -C _must_ be used with the patch format output is no longer necessary. The patch makes -M and -C flags independent of -p flag, so you need to say git-whatchanged -M -p to get the diff/patch format. Updated are both documentations and tests.
