diff/status: refactor opportunistic index update
When we had to refresh the index internally before running diff or status, we opportunistically updated the $GIT_INDEX_FILE so that later invocation of git can use the lstat(2) we already did in this invocation. Make them share a helper function to do so. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
