I understand and agree to the change up to this part, but I do
not necessarily agree with what follows:

> +			rev->always_show_header = 0;
> +			if (rev->diffopt.output_format == DIFF_FORMAT_RAW)

To me, if the user explicitly says --diff-filter or -S, it seems
more natural to interpret that the user wanted _some_ sort of
diff.  Now, there are people who say raw format is anti-human,
which I consider is a valid view, but I think it is better than
NO_OUTPUT in that case.

I wonder if doing something like this instead makes more sense
perhaps?
