diff: futureproof "stop feeding the backend early" logic
Refactor the "do not stop feeding the backend early" logic into a small helper function and use it in both run_diff_files() and diff_tree() that has the stop-early optimization. We may later add other types of diffcore transformation that require to look at the whole result like diff-filter does, and having the logic in a single place is essential for longer term maintainability.
