      Description

      Our "svn diff --git" output uses /dev/null as the nonexistent side filename for added or removed files, yet "man git-diff" says "even for a creation or a deletion, /dev/null is not used in place of the a/ or b/ filenames".

      (Regarding non-git mode, see also SVN-2527 "svn diff does not use /dev/null as filename for added or removed files".)
