bug#14989: 24.3.50; log-view-diff and log-view-diff-changeset default to different `to' revisions for git merge commits

Have a merge commit where the second branch (merged from) has a newer
last commit than the first branch (merged to).
`vc-print-root-log' buffer would look like this:
* (HEAD, devel)b044fba..: Some Guy 2013-07-25 foo foo
* 2152d76..: Dmitry Gutov 2013-07-25 Merge branch 'bar' into devel
| * (bar)1554943..: Another Guy 2013-07-25 Abc
| * f92770a..: Another Guy 2013-07-25 Def
* | 5f5c068..: Another Guy 2013-07-25 Ghi
If I move to commit 2152d76 and press `d', it will show the diff against
1554943. If I press `D', if will show the diff against 5f5c068, which is
*the* parent commit, as far as Git is concerned (the first parent, to be
more exact), because it belongs to the branch `devel', and the merge was
done from `bar' to `devel'.
Since this is a `vc-print-root-log' buffer, both commands will show the
full changesets, not just changes in an individual file.
But the behavior in `vc-print-log' is the same in this respect, except
the diff `d' shows is just for the current file.
`log-view-diff' behavior makes certain amount of sense (it always diffs
against the revision on the line below), but it's inconsistent with
`log-view-diff-changeset', and it also backfires when the current commit
is not a child of the commit on the previous line. Example: f92770a and
5f5c068. As a result, we get a meaningless diff.
This fix is simple enough. Apply?

The functions could also use some further cleanup:
1) Swap the `to' and `fr' local variables.
2) Extract the function bodies to one function with a third argument
(called `whole-changeset', maybe), and make them call it.
