rc1 had a section "Backward compatibility notes" where the recent work
on "git log -m" was mentioned. That was then dropped because of
6a38e33331 ("Revert 'diff-merges: let "-m" imply "-p"'", 2021-08-05), so
there are no backward compatibility notes in rc2.

This is basically the same blurb. It was duplicated in rc1, and one of
the copies remains in rc2. I believe it should be dropped.
