am: support --show-current-patch=diff to retrieve .git/rebase-apply/patch
When "git am --show-current-patch" was added in commit 984913a210 ("am: add --show-current-patch", 2018-02-12), "git am" started recommending it as a replacement for .git/rebase-merge/patch. Unfortunately the suggestion is somewhat misguided; for example, the output of "git am --show-current-patch" cannot be passed to "git apply" if it is encoded as quoted-printable or base64. Add a new mode to "git am --show-current-patch" in order to straighten the suggestion. Reported-by: J. Bruce Fields <> Signed-off-by: Paolo Bonzini <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
