Sometimes when diffing, files may show as being momdified even when
there are no interesting diffs to show.  This happens naturally when
using options such as --ignore-space-change.  We don't want to prevent
the display  of all files that have 0 effective diffs since they could
be the result of a rename, permission change, or other similar operation
that may still be of interest so we special case additions and deletions
as they are always interesting.

    diff: teach --stat to ignore uninteresting modifications
    
    This patch is based on the discussion these email threads:
    
    https://lore.kernel.org/git/1484704915.2096.16.camel@mattmccutchen.net/
    https://lore.kernel.org/git/CAOjrSZtQPQ8Xxuz+7SGykR8Q-gFDEZANSE5yQASqKjpbUAq_5Q@mail.gmail.com/
    
    With the code mostly taken from this specific message:
    https://lore.kernel.org/git/20170118111705.6bqzkklluikda3r5@sigill.intra.peff.net/
    
    The summary is that when running git diff --stat in combination with
    --ignore-all-space or similar options, you'll see many lines of the
    form:
    
    some-file.txt | 0
    
    which can be misleading when you are explicitly telling git to "ignore
    all space" or something similar. To rectify this issue, this patch
    categorizes all files that are modified but have no effective changes as
    not fit to display to the user.

There are some "trailing whitespace" errors detected by "git am/apply".

This is a "let's show off our shiny new toy" test, which shows that
the code change covered the case you are interested in changing.
We'd also need tests that makes sure that the effect of the code
change is not seen when it should not trigger.

For example, if we further change mode bits of file 'x' (which has a
whitespace-only changes applied in the test in the previous hunk),
e.g.

	git update-index --chmod=+x x &&
	git diff --stat -b --cached >actual

should that be counted as a file with 0-line change that is worth
reporting, or is it hidden?  I _think_ the new code will do a wrong
thing here.  That is,

 - If the change truly is only mode bits and one and two have
   "same_contents", the new code is bypassed, and we'll continue to
   show "0 lines changed, but the file is worth reporting".

 - If the change is whitespace-only change plus mode bits, i.e. one
   and two do not have "same_contents", the new code triggers and
   the stat output is suppressed for the path.

This first one is the behavior I was going for, I think it's most reasonable

I just ran some tests on my end, and you're correct here, I'll try to come
up with a reroll that addresses this and adds this as a test condition.

    New in V2:
    
     * I've added a test covering the rename case with whitespace-changes
       and permissions changes
     * I've also updated the logic in builtin_diffstat to include that logic
       as well

Read the next paragraph and notice that it explains the cases where
the patch does not want not to show, and then read the above again
to realize that the above does not say anything about what it wants
to do to cases the next paragraph does not cover.  It only says such
a case often happens when --ignore-space-change is used.

	When options like --ignore-space-change is in use, files
	with modification can have no interesting textual changes
	worth showing.  In such cases, "git diff --stat" shows 0
	lines of additions and deletions.  Teach "git diff --stat"
	not to show such a path in its output, which would be more
	natural.

perhaps?

Yup.  That makes sense.  

It would be nice if this does not have to be implemented as a list
of exceptions, though.  Rather, a more targetted "omit output only
in this narrow case" would be nicer, but the check with the mode
bits should do at lesat for now.

* [PATCH v3] diff: teach --stat to ignore uninteresting modifications

From: Matthew Rogers <mattr94@gmail.com>

When options such as --ignore-space-change are in use, files with
modifications can have no interesting textual changes worth showing.  In
such cases, "git diff --stat" shows 0 lines of additions and deletions.
Teach "git diff --stat" not to show such a path in its output, which
would be more natural.

However, we don't want to prevent the display  of all files that have 0
effective diffs since they could be the result of a rename, permission
change, or other similar operation that may still be of interest so we
special case additions and deletions as they are always interesting.

    diff: teach --stat to ignore uninteresting modifications
    
    This patch is based on the discussion these email threads:
    
    https://lore.kernel.org/git/1484704915.2096.16.camel@mattmccutchen.net/
    https://lore.kernel.org/git/CAOjrSZtQPQ8Xxuz+7SGykR8Q-gFDEZANSE5yQASqKjpbUAq_5Q@mail.gmail.com/
    
    With the code mostly taken from this specific message:
    https://lore.kernel.org/git/20170118111705.6bqzkklluikda3r5@sigill.intra.peff.net/
    
    The summary is that when running git diff --stat in combination with
    --ignore-all-space or similar options, you'll see many lines of the
    form:
    
    some-file.txt | 0
    
    which can be misleading when you are explicitly telling git to "ignore
    all space" or something similar. To rectify this issue, this patch
    categorizes all files that are modified but have no effective changes as
    not fit to display to the user.
    
    New in V2:
    
     * I've added a test covering the rename case with whitespace-changes
       and permissions changes
     * I've also updated the logic in builtin_diffstat to include that logic
       as well

Looks good, thanks.  Will queue.


By the way, before making your commits, please make sure you do not
have whitespace errors.  I've let my "git am" to fix them, so no
need to resend, but for future reference...

.git/rebase-apply/patch:116: trailing whitespace.
			struct diffstat_file *file = 
.git/rebase-apply/patch:119: trailing whitespace.
			 * Omit diffstats of modified files where nothing changed. 
.git/rebase-apply/patch:122: trailing whitespace.
			 * 
.git/rebase-apply/patch:124: trailing whitespace.
			 * renames, and mode changes as adding an empty file, 
.git/rebase-apply/patch:127: trailing whitespace.
			if ((p->status == DIFF_STATUS_MODIFIED) 
warning: 5 lines applied after fixing whitespace errors.
