[PATCH] Use enhanced diff_delta() in the similarity estimator.
The diff_delta() interface was extended to reject generating too big a delta while we were working on the packed GIT archive format. Take advantage of that when generating delta in the similarity estimator used in diffcore-rename.c Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <>
