.gitattributes: set git diff driver for C source code files
Git can be told to apply language-specific rules when generating diffs. Enable this for C source code files (*.c and *.h) so that function names are printed right. Specifically, doing so prevents "git diff" from mistakenly considering unindented goto labels as function names.
