util: git pre-commit hook to check staged files

This patch updates the git-pre-commit hook to check the files as they
will be after the commit, instead of as they are currently, this way we
prevent the undesired situation:
    - unstylish modification of a file
    - stage said file for commit
    - try to commit and fail due to style
    - fix style, forgetting staging changes
    - try to commit and fail, as although the changes staged are not
      styly, the current content of the file is.
