git-diff: turn on recursion by default
The tree recursion behavior of git-diff may appear inconsistent to the user because it depends on the format of the patch as well as whether one is diffing between trees or against the index. Since git-diff is a porcelain wrapper for low-level diff commands, it makes sense for its behavior to be consistent no matter what is being diffed. This patch turns on recursion in all cases.
