diff: activate diff.renames by default
Rename detection is a very convenient feature, and new users shouldn't have to dig in the documentation to benefit from it. Potential objections to activating rename detection are that it sometimes fail, and it is sometimes slow. But rename detection is already activated by default in several cases like "git status" and "git merge", so activating diff.renames does not fundamentally change the situation. When the rename detection fails, it now fails consistently between "git diff" and "git status". This setting does not affect plumbing commands, hence well-written scripts will not be affected.
