Documentation updates.
Linus brought up that documentation for many commands have incorrect attribution. I started counting lines again, but ended up adding a handful of missing manual pages. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

+git-whatchanged - Show logs with difference each commit introduces.
+'git whatchanged' <option>...
+Shows commit logs and diff output each commit introduces. The
+command internally invokes 'git-rev-list' piped to
+'git-diff-tree', and takes command line options for both of
+these commands.
+This manual page describes only the most frequently used options.
+ Show textual diffs, instead of the git internal diff
+ output format that is useful only to tell the changed
+ paths and their nature of changes.
+ Limit output to <n> commits.
+ Limit output to between the two named commits (bottom
+ exclusive, top inclusive).
+ Show git internal diff output, but for the whole tree,
+ not just the top level.
+ Controls the output format for the commit logs.
+ <format> can be one of 'raw', 'medium', 'short', 'full',
+ and 'oneline'.
