Bug#928356: elpa-magit: diff buffer when committing is often useless/wrong

Package: elpa-magit
Version: 2.90.1-2
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

When committing changes without using staging (i.e., with `git commit -a` or
`git commit explicit/path/to/files`), the magit-diff buffer which is spawned
shows the diff for the most recent commit to master - not the proposed action
of the current commit.  To reproduce:

    git init test
    cd test
    echo "test file" > foo
    git add foo
    git commit -am 'Initial commit'
    echo "something else" > foo
    git commit -a # this will incorrectly show an empty diff buffer
    echo "a third thing" > foo
    git commit -a # this will incorrectly show the previous commit
