I think you should be able to add "dt=2" to the query parameters in the
URL to enable the "stat only" diff mode, but it looks like we don't have
a way to enable that by default via the config.

The feature was originally added to support links to diffs between Linux
kernel versions (e.g. for the patch from v4.4.18 to v4.4.19) and it
hasn't been extended at all beyond that, but the commit page calls the
same code to generate the diff so the query parameter should work there
as well.
