git-log.txt: include rev-list-description.txt

The `git log` synopsis mentions `<revision range>`, and the description
of this option links to gitrevisions(7), but a nice explanation of
how a revision range can be constructed from individual commits,
optionnally prefixed with `^`, also exists in `rev-list-description.txt`.

Include this description in the man page for `git log`.

Add Asciidoc 'ifdef's to `rev-list-description.txt` so that either `git
rev-list` or `git log` appears in the respective man pages.

Another special notation is "'<commit1>'...'<commit2>'" which is useful
for merges. The resulting set of commits is the symmetric difference
between the two operands. The following two commands are equivalent:
