Decisions taken for simplicity:
1) It is not allowed to pass pathspec in both args and file.

Adjustments were needed for `if (!argc)` block:

This code actually means "pathspec is not present". Previously, pathspec
could only come from commandline arguments, so testing for `argc` was a
valid way of testing for the presence of pathspec. But this is no longer
true with `--pathspec-from-file`.

During the entire `--pathspec-from-file` story, I tried to keep its
behavior very close to giving pathspec on commandline, so that switching
from one to another doesn't involve any surprises.

However, throwing usage at user in the case of empty
`--pathspec-from-file` would puzzle because there's nothing wrong with
"usage" (that is, argc/argv array).

On the other hand, throwing usage in the old case also feels bad to me.
While it's less of a puzzle, I (as user) never liked the experience of
comparing my commandline to "usage", trying to spot a difference. Since
it's already known what the error is, it feels a lot better to give that
specific error to user.

Judging from [1] it doesn't seem that showing usage in this case was
important (the patch was to avoid segfault), and it doesn't fit into how
other commands react to empty pathspec (see for example `git add` with a
custom message).

Therefore, I decided to show new error text in both cases. In order to
continue testing for error early, I moved `parse_pathspec()` higher. Now
it happens before `read_cache()` / `hold_locked_index()` /
`setup_work_tree()`, which shouldn't cause any issues.

Here's the V3 in title :)

 DESCRIPTION
 -----------
@@ -73,6 +75,19 @@  For more details, see the 'pathspec' entry in linkgit:gitglossary[7].
 	`git rm` normally outputs one line (in the form of an `rm` command)
 	for each file removed. This option suppresses that output.
 
+--pathspec-from-file=<file>::
+	Pathspec is passed in `<file>` instead of commandline args. If
+	`<file>` is exactly `-` then standard input is used. Pathspec
+	elements are separated by LF or CR/LF. Pathspec elements can be
+	quoted as explained for the configuration variable `core.quotePath`
+	(see linkgit:git-config[1]). See also `--pathspec-file-nul` and
+	global `--literal-pathspecs`.
+
+--pathspec-file-nul::
+	Only meaningful with `--pathspec-from-file`. Pathspec elements are
+	separated with NUL character and all other characters are taken
+	literally (including newlines and quotes).
