Thank you for good information.

I looked the code.

* git get paths from "git --diff" line only if the file is changed.
* When the file is renamed, copied or deleted, git gets paths from diff file (e.g. "+++ foo.h").
* To get paths from a diff line which contains paths which have space, git splits the diff line with space or tab, and it checks the two paths is same.
* To support --src-prefix and --dst-prefix, git use -p parameter which is same as patch(1) or  heuristically guess -p parameter of a diff using the diff and relative path from the .git directory .
