Well, the documentation calls these parameter "commit", later saying
"For a more complete list of ways to spell <commit>, see "SPECIFYING

Note that I was not missing the fact that git diff does not apply
texconv and filters.

I'm not sure the man page is wrong and should be changed:

  -- usage: git diff [<options>] [<commit> [<commit>]] [--] [<path>...]
  ++ usage: git diff [<options>] [<commit> [<commit>]]
