Yes, this fix changes user-visible behavior, so perhaps it should be
mentioned in NEWS.

"fileset" is essential to be mentioned in `vc-version-diff'
whereas the text "in the repository history" is unnecessary.

As "fileset" is essential for `vc-version-diff',
"whole tree" is essential for `vc-root-version-diff':
