Not true. If GNU patch (and git-apply) can detect where diff begins,
and can detect if diff was truncated, then highlighting mode can
distinguish between diff -u part and rest... well, unless you intermix
diff-u output and arbitrary text (so the patch would not apply, but what
happens when commenting a patch).
Still I'd rather relax highlighting code to not highlight "SPC LF"
than to change diff -u format.
