> FR: Improve grep output (show function names, when possible)

I think external commands (like `cscope' etc.) should output function names
much more efficiently than using `find-file-noselect' and `which-function'
to post-process their output.

There was a suggestion to implement this in `grep' with the
`-p --show-c-function' command line argument as mentioned in:


There are other grep-like commands that already can output function names,
e.g. `git-grep'.  If you add to ~./.gitconfig the following lines:

[diff "el"]
        xfuncname = "^(\\(.*)$"

and to a project-specific file .gitattributes:

*.el   diff=el

then the following command will output function names:

git grep -inH -p -e "org-element-map"
lisp/org/org.el=20969=(defun org-fill-paragraph (&optional justify)
lisp/org/org.el:21047:                (org-element-map

Since line numbers of function names are enclosed with `=' in its output,
they could be highlighted like `-' separators with this patch:
