    diff: Remove location modification from 2004
    diffutils has been carrying this modification since version 2.8.1.  That
    version was changed to support libgnuregex which has since been removed.
    It appears that likely libgnuregex didn't support the
    RE_NO_POSIX_BACKTRACKING option, and thus required the modification.
