bug#8672: 23.3; diff-fixup-modifs fails for some small diffs

From: PJ Weisberg
Subject: bug#8672: 23.3; diff-fixup-modifs fails for some small diffs

Start with these commands in the shell:

echo test > file.txt
echo "foo\ntest\nbar" > other.txt
diff -u file.txt other.txt > diff.patch

The resulting diff.patch contains:

--- other.txt    2011-05-14 12:56:21.000000000 -0700
+++ file.txt    2011-05-12 23:35:47.000000000 -0700
@@ -1 +1,3 @@

Now open that file with emacs -Q and run 'M-x diff-fixup-modifs'.  It
chokes because there's no , after the -1.

If I'm reading diff-mode.el correctly, the line that raises the error
will *always* raise that error, because it's trying to use (match-end 2)
as a character position after (match-string 2) has already returned
nil.  Oops. :-/

In case it matters, my version of diff is:
