Patch files created and uploaded with webkit-patch from a git repository where files have been renamed does not work properly.

The renamed files are not included in the patch.
It appears that this is because the renamed files are added to the staging area, and webkit-patch post only operates on local changes and commits.

For an example of the difference of what webkit-patch does, and a manual git diff created patch, see:

The obsoleted patch is one created by webkit-patch post 57666
The committed patch is the one created with git diff by hand.
