attr: (re)introduce git_check_attr() and struct attr_check
A common pattern to check N attributes for many paths is to (1) prepare an array A of N attr_check_item items; (2) call git_attr() to intern the N attribute names and fill A; (3) repeatedly call git_check_attrs() for path with N and A; A look-up for these N attributes for a single path P scans the entire attr_stack, starting from the .git/info/attributes file and then .gitattributes file in the directory the path P is in, going upwards to find .gitattributes file found in parent directories. An earlier commit 06a604e6 (attr: avoid heavy work when we know the specified attr is not defined, 2014-12-28) tried to optimize out this scanning for one trivial special case: when the attribute being sought is known not to exist, we do not have to scan for it. While this may be a cheap and effective heuristic, it would not work well when N is (much) more than 1. What we would want is a more customized way to skip irrelevant entries in the attribute stack, and the definition of irrelevance is tied to the set of attributes passed to git_check_attrs() call, i.e. the set of attributes being sought. The data necessary for this optimization needs to live alongside the set of attributes, but a simple array of git_attr_check_elem simply does not have any place for that. Introduce "struct attr_check" that contains N, the number of attributes being sought, and A, the array that holds N attr_check_item items, and a function git_check_attr() that takes a path P and this structure as its parameters. This structure can later be extended to hold extra data necessary for optimization. Also, to make it easier to write the first two steps in common cases, introduce git_attr_check_initl() helper function, which takes a NULL-terminated list of attribute names and initialize this structure.
