[development] Please stop using git diff --no-prefix. -p1 patches are now the standard

I noticed in another thread that somebody suggested git diff --no-prefix for
creating patches.

Please don't do that any more. We've moved to standard git patches (git diff
without the --no-prefix, meaning a patch -p1 patch).

Testbot support for -p0 patches (--no-prefix) will be removed around the end
of May. See http://groups.drupal.org/node/140204

Some of you may have the --no-prefix stuff in your  .gitconfig. Please
remove it from there as well.

In the issue queues, please start to insist on rerolls for -p0 formatted
patches (if they have no a/ and b/ in front of the filenames.

Thanks for your cooperation.
