diff-precise-limit: preference variable

Default value: 4,000,000

The diff command normally uses an algorithm that finds the minimum set of differences between the lines of two buffers. But this algorithm becomes slow on very large buffers. So if both buffers are larger (in bytes) than this setting, Epsilon uses a different algorithm that doesn't always find the absolute minimum set of differences (and may give up if the buffers are too different, according to diff-mismatch-lines), but is much faster.
