merge-recursive --patience
Teach the merge-recursive strategy a --patience option to use the "patience diff" algorithm, which tends to improve results when cherry-picking a patch that reorders functions at the same time as refactoring them. To support this, struct merge_options and ll_merge_options gain an xdl_opts member, so programs can use arbitrary xdiff flags (think "XDF_IGNORE_WHITESPACE") in a git-aware merge. git merge and git rebase can be passed the -Xpatience option to use this. [jn: split from --ignore-space patch; with documentation] Signed-off-by: Justin Frankel <> Signed-off-by: Jonathan Nieder <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
