format-patch: inform user that patch-id generation is unstable
I tried out 'git format-patch --base' with a set of commits that modifies more than one file. It turns out that the way this command is implemented it actually uses the unstable version of patch-id instead of the stable version that's documented. When I tried to modify the existing test to use 'git patch-id --stable' vs. 'git patch-id --unstable' I found that it didn't matter, the test still passed. Let's expand on the test here so it is a little more complicated and then use that to show that the patch-id generation is actually unstable vs. stable. Update the documentation as well.
