Teach git diff about BibTeX head hunk patterns
All BibTeX entries starts with an @ followed by an entry type. Since there are many entry types and own can be defined, the pattern matches legal entry type names instead of just the default types (which would be a long list). The pattern also matches strings and comments since they will also be useful to position oneself in a bib-file. Signed-off-by: Gustaf Hendeby <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
