fast-export: ensure that a renamed file is printed after all references
t9350 sets up a commit where a file is both copied and renamed. The output of fast-export for this commit should look like this: author ... committer ... from :19 C "file2" "file4" R "file2" "file5" The order of the two modification lines is derived from the result that the diff machinery produces. 060df62 (fast-export: Fix output order of D/F changes) inserted a qsort call that modifies the order of the diff result. Unfortunately, qsort need not be stable. Therefore, it is possible that the 'R' line appears before the 'C' line and the resulting fast-import stream is incorrect. Fix it by forcing that the rename entry is printed after all other modification lines with the same file name. Signed-off-by: Johannes Sixt <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
