treewide: rename 'exclude' methods to 'pattern'
The first consumer of pattern-matching filenames was the .gitignore feature. In that context, storing a list of patterns as a 'struct exclude_list' makes sense. However, the sparse-checkout feature then adopted these structures and methods, but with the opposite meaning: these patterns match the files that should be included! It would be clearer to rename this entire library as a "pattern matching" library, and the callers apply exclusion/inclusion logic accordingly based on their needs. This commit renames several methods defined in dir.h to make more sense with the renamed 'struct exclude_list' to 'struct pattern_list' and 'struct exclude' to 'struct path_pattern': * last_exclude_matching() -> last_matching_pattern() * parse_exclude() -> parse_path_pattern() In addition, the word 'exclude' was replaced with 'pattern' in the methods below: * add_exclude_list() * add_excludes_from_file_to_list() * add_excludes_from_file() * add_excludes_from_blob_to_list() * add_exclude() * clear_exclude_list() A few methods with the word "exclude" remain. These will be handled seperately. In particular, the method "is_excluded()" is concretely about the .gitignore file relative to a specific directory. This is the important boundary between library and consumer: is_excluded() cares about .gitignore, but is_excluded() calls last_matching_pattern() to make that decision.
