Subject: [PATCH] Set git diff driver for C source code files
Date: Wed, 7 Sep 2016 14:34:03 +0200
Message-ID: <20160907143403.1449324f@endymion> (raw)

Git can be told to apply language-specific rules when generating
diffs. Enable this for C source code files (*.c and *.h) so that
function names are printed right. Specifically, doing so prevents
"git diff" from mistakenly considering unindented goto labels as
function names.
