difftool.c: learn a new way start at specified file

`git difftool` only allow us to select file to view in turn.
If there is a commit with many files and we exit in the middle,
we will have to traverse list again to get the file diff which
we want to see. Therefore,teach the command an option
`--skip-to=<path>` to allow the user to say that diffs for earlier
paths are not interesting (because they were already seen in an
earlier session) and start this session with the named path.
