Well you probably don't want to use git diff in a shell, there are many
external packages that does it much better (for example magit).

The "problem" is that git diff calls a pager (less probably) and the
shell in emacs is not a full terminal emulator.

There is also M-x term which is closer, but it doesn't make so much
sense in my opinion..
