Thanks, I have a few minor comments, mainly to the documentation

This line is too long, suggest to rephrase:

  *** Better syntax highlighting of Diff hunks.
  Fragments of source in Diff hunks are now by default highlighted
  according to the appropriate major mode.  Customize the new option
  'diff-font-lock-syntax' to nil to disable this.

"nil" should be in @code.

Any reason not to use setq-local?

Although an internal function, could it have a slightly more detailed
do string, please?

This is for a single hunk, not "hunks", right?  Also, please mention
the arguments in the doc string.

Please mention the arguments ion the doc string.
