Print out the ref names of any commits that are shown.
+ Without this flag, "git log -p <paths>..." shows commits that
+ touch the specified paths, and diffs about the same specified
+ paths. With this, the full diff is shown for commits that touch
+ the specified paths; this means that "<paths>..." limits only
+ commits, and doesn't limit diff for those commits.
Show only commits that affect the specified paths.
