quote_path_relative(): remove redundant parameter
quote_path_relative() used to take a counted string as its parameter (the string to be quoted). With an earlier change, it now uses relative_path() that does not take a counted string, and we have been passing only the pointer to the string since then. Remove the length parameter from quote_path_relative() to show that this parameter was redundant. All the changed lines show that the caller passed either -1 (to ask the function run strlen() on the string), or the length of the string, so the earlier conversion was safe. All the callers of quote_path_relative() that used to take counted string have been audited to make sure that they are passing length of the actual string (or -1 to ask the callee run strlen()) Signed-off-by: Jiang Xin <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
