[bug-diffutils] bug#31105: [PATCH] Restart and reset ANSI escapes on each line for compatibility with less -R

GNU less can display ANSI-colored text with the -R flag, but this
support has some limitations. One of them is that if an escape
sequence starts on one line and ends on a different line, only the
first line will be colored in less.
As a result, when diff creates colored output with multi-line deletes
or adds, less will only color the first line.
I've attached a patch to reset ANSI color to the default at the end of
every line and restart it at the beginning of the next. It patches
normal and context mode. Side-by-side already worked in my testing.
I hope it's useful to you. Please let me know if there are changes you
would like made before you can accept it.
