diffcore-delta: tweak hashbase value.
This tweaks the maximum hashvalue we use to hash the string into without making the maximum size of the hashtable can grow from the current limit. With this, the renames detected becomes a bit more precise without incurring additional paging cost. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
