Combined diff is a way to show a tricky conflict resolved in a
tricky way, so that the tricky-ness of the resolution can be
examined.  A trivial resolution that takes one side is not shown
because it is not usually interesting. This design choice of course
have to trust people involved in the project do not pull from
untrustworthy sources.

You would need "log -p -m" (without any pathspec) for the kind of
"security" you are talking about.  Note that "-p -m --first-parent"
is not necessarily enough.
