Git v1.7.0.4 Release Notes

Fixes since v1.7.0.3

* Optimized ntohl/htonl on big-endian machines were broken.

* Color values given to "color.<cmd>.<slot>" configuration can now have
more than one attributes (e.g. "bold ul").

* "git add -u nonexistent-path" did not complain.

* "git apply --whitespace=fix" didn't work well when an early patch in
a patch series adds trailing blank lines and a later one depended on
such a block of blank lines at the end.

* "git fast-export" didn't check error status and stop when marks file
cannot be opened.

* "git format-patch --ignore-if-in-upstream" gave unwarranted errors
when the range was empty, instead of silently finishing.

* "git remote prune" did not detect remote tracking refs that became
dangling correctly.

And other minor fixes and documentation updates.
