Fix revision log diff setup, avoid unnecessary diff generation
We used to incorrectly start calculating diffs whenever any argument but '-z' was recognized by the diff options parsing. That was bogus, since not all arguments result in diffs being needed, so we just waste a lot of time and effort on calculating diffs that don't matter. This actually also fixes another bug in "git log". Try this: git log -C and notice how it prints an extra empty line in between log entries, even though it never prints the actual diff (because we didn't ask for any diff format, so the diff machinery never prints anything). With this patch, that bogus empty line is gone, because "revs->diff" is never set. So this isn't just a "wasted time and effort" issue, it's also a slight semantic fix.
