Documentation: git-log cannot use rev-list specific options

The log family and git-rev-list share the same set of options that come
from revision walking machinery, but they both have options unique to
them. Notably, --header, --timestamp, --stdin and --quiet apply only to
rev-list. Exclude them from the git-log documentation.

 `--date=default` shows timestamps in the original timezone
 (either committer's or author's).
 	Print the contents of the commit in raw-format; each record is
 	separated with a NUL character.
 	Print the parents of the commit.
 	Print the raw commit timestamp.
 	Pretend as if all the refs in `$GIT_DIR/refs/` are listed on the
 	command line as '<commit>'.
 	In addition to the '<commit>' listed on the command
 	test the exit status to see if a range of objects is fully
 	connected (or not).  It is faster than redirecting stdout
 	to /dev/null as the output does not have to be formatted.
