The series looks good, but I can't test it because it does not apply
anywhere here.

At first, I wondered what the point of having --symlinks and --no-symlinks
was when there is no discernable difference. But 1f229345 (difftool: Use
symlinks when diffing against the worktree) makes it pretty clear: It's an
optimization, and --no-symlinks is only intended as an escape hatch.
