manual: Fix example finding commits referencing given content.
If I'm handed a file, then it typically lives outside the working directory. git-log only operates on in-tree files, so the first 'filename' should be an in-tree one, or it should look at all files. This patch does the latter, so it would also find renamed files. However, it is also slower. Signed-off-by: Lars Hjemli <> Signed-off-by: Shawn O. Pearce <>
