Optimize diff-cache -p --cached
This patch optimizes "diff-cache -p --cached" by avoiding to inflate blobs into temporary files when the blob recorded in the cache matches the corresponding file in the work tree. The file in the work tree is passed as the comparison source in such a case instead. This optimization kicks in only when we have already read the cache this optimization and this is deliberate. Especially, diff-tree does not use this code, because changes are contained in small number of files relative to the project size most of the time, and reading cache is so expensive for a large project that the cost of reading it outweighs the savings by not inflating blobs. Also this patch cleans up the structure passed from diff clients by removing one unused structure member. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <junkio@cox.net>
