cat-file: remove unused includes
- "exec_cmd.h" became unnecessary at b931aa5a (Call builtin ls-tree in git-cat-file -p, 2006-05-26), when it changed an earlier code that delegated tree display to "ls-tree" via the run_command() API (hence needing "exec_cmd.h") to call cmd_ls_tree() directly. We should have removed the include in the same commit, but we forgot to do so. - "diff.h" was added at e5fba602 (textconv: support for cat_file, 2010-06-15), together with "userdiff.h", but "userdiff.h" can be included without including "diff.h"; the header was unnecessary from the beginning. - "tag.h" and "tree.h" were necessary since 8e440259 (Use blob_, commit_, tag_, and tree_type throughout., 2006-04-02) to check the type of object by comparing typename with tree_type and tag_type (pointers to extern strings). 21666f1a (convert object type handling from a string to a number, 2007-02-26) made these <type>_type strings unnecessary, and it could have switched to include "object.h", which is necessary to use typename(), but it forgot to do so. Because "tag.h" and "tree.h" include "object.h", it did not need to explicitly include "object.h" in order to start using typename() itself. We do not even have to include "object.h" after removing these two #includes, because "builtin.h" includes "commit.h" which in turn includes "object.h" these days. This happened at 7b9c0a69 (git-commit-tree: make it usable from other builtins, 2008-07-01). Signed-off-by: Alexander Kuleshov <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
