clone: open a shortcut for connectivity check
In order to make sure the cloned repository is good, we run "rev-list --objects --not --all $new_refs" on the repository. This is expensive on large repositories. This patch attempts to mitigate the impact in this special case. In the "good" clone case, we only have one pack. If all of the following are met, we can be sure that all objects reachable from the new refs exist, which is the intention of running "rev-list ...": - all refs point to an object in the pack - there are no dangling pointers in any object in the pack - no objects in the pack point to objects outside the pack The second and third checks can be done with the help of index-pack as a slight variation of --strict check (which introduces a new condition for the shortcut: pack transfer must be used and the number of objects large enough to call index-pack). The first is checked in check_everything_connected after we get an "ok" from index-pack. "index-pack + new checks" is still faster than the current "index-pack + rev-list", which is the whole point of this patch. If any of the conditions fail, we fall back to the good old but expensive "rev-list ..". In that case it's even more expensive because we have to pay for the new checks in index-pack. But that should only happen when the other side is either buggy or malicious. Cloning linux-2.6 over file:// before after real 3m25.693s 2m53.050s user 5m2.037s 4m42.396s sys 0m13.750s 0m16.574s A more realistic test with ssh:// over wireless before after real 11m26.629s 10m4.213s user 5m43.196s 5m19.444s sys 0m35.812s 0m37.630s This shortcut is not applied to shallow clones, partly because shallow clones should have no more objects than a usual fetch and the cost of rev-list is acceptable, partly to avoid dealing with corner cases when grafting is involved. This shortcut does not apply to unpack-objects code path either because the number of objects must be small in order to trigger that code path.
