grep: use PCRE v2 for optimized fixed-string search
Bring back optimized fixed-string search for "grep", this time with PCRE v2 as an optional backend. As noted in [1] with kwset we were slower than PCRE v1 and v2 JIT with the kwset backend, so that optimization was counterproductive. This brings back the optimization for "--fixed-strings", without changing the semantics of having a NUL-byte in patterns. As seen in previous commits in this series we could support it now, but I'd rather just leave that edge-case aside so we don't have one behavior or the other depending what "--fixed-strings" backend we're using. It makes the behavior harder to understand and document, and makes tests for the different backends more painful. This does change the behavior under non-C locales when "log"'s "--encoding" option is used and the heystack/needle in the content/command-line doesn't have a matching encoding. See the recent change in "t4210: skip more command-line encoding tests on MinGW" in this series. I think that's OK. We did nothing sensible before then (just compared raw bytes that had no hope of matching). At least now the user will get some idea why their grep/log never matches in that edge case. I could also support the PCRE v1 backend here, but that would make the code more complex. I'd rather aim for simplicity here and in future changes to the diffcore. We're not going to have someone who absolutely must have faster search, but for whom building PCRE v2 isn't acceptable. The difference between this series of commits and the current "master" is, using the same t/perf commands shown in the last commit: plain grep: Test origin/master HEAD ------------------------------------------------------------------------- 7821.1: fixed grep int 0.55(1.67+0.56) 0.41(0.98+0.60) -25.5% 7821.2: basic grep int 0.58(1.65+0.52) 0.41(0.96+0.57) -29.3% 7821.3: extended grep int 0.57(1.66+0.49) 0.42(0.93+0.60) -26.3% 7821.4: perl grep int 0.54(1.67+0.50) 0.43(0.88+0.65) -20.4% 7821.6: fixed grep uncommon 0.21(0.52+0.42) 0.16(0.24+0.51) -23.8% 7821.7: basic grep uncommon 0.20(0.49+0.45) 0.17(0.28+0.47) -15.0% 7821.8: extended grep uncommon 0.20(0.54+0.39) 0.16(0.25+0.50) -20.0% 7821.9: perl grep uncommon 0.20(0.58+0.36) 0.16(0.23+0.50) -20.0% 7821.11: fixed grep æ 0.35(1.24+0.43) 0.16(0.23+0.50) -54.3% 7821.12: basic grep æ 0.36(1.29+0.38) 0.16(0.20+0.54) -55.6% 7821.13: extended grep æ 0.35(1.23+0.44) 0.16(0.24+0.50) -54.3% 7821.14: perl grep æ 0.35(1.33+0.34) 0.16(0.28+0.46) -54.3% grep with -i: Test origin/master HEAD ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- 7821.1: fixed grep -i int 0.62(1.81+0.70) 0.47(1.11+0.64) -24.2% 7821.2: basic grep -i int 0.67(1.90+0.53) 0.46(1.07+0.62) -31.3% 7821.3: extended grep -i int 0.62(1.92+0.53) 0.53(1.12+0.58) -14.5% 7821.4: perl grep -i int 0.66(1.85+0.58) 0.45(1.10+0.59) -31.8% 7821.6: fixed grep -i uncommon 0.21(0.54+0.43) 0.17(0.20+0.55) -19.0% 7821.7: basic grep -i uncommon 0.20(0.52+0.45) 0.17(0.29+0.48) -15.0% 7821.8: extended grep -i uncommon 0.21(0.52+0.44) 0.17(0.26+0.50) -19.0% 7821.9: perl grep -i uncommon 0.21(0.53+0.44) 0.17(0.20+0.56) -19.0% 7821.11: fixed grep -i æ 0.26(0.79+0.44) 0.16(0.29+0.46) -38.5% 7821.12: basic grep -i æ 0.26(0.79+0.42) 0.16(0.20+0.54) -38.5% 7821.13: extended grep -i æ 0.26(0.84+0.39) 0.16(0.24+0.50) -38.5% 7821.14: perl grep -i æ 0.16(0.24+0.49) 0.17(0.25+0.51) +6.3% plain log: Test origin/master HEAD -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 4221.1: fixed log --grep='int' 7.24(6.95+0.28) 7.20(6.95+0.18) -0.6% 4221.2: basic log --grep='int' 7.31(6.97+0.22) 7.20(6.93+0.21) -1.5% 4221.3: extended log --grep='int' 7.37(7.04+0.24) 7.22(6.91+0.25) -2.0% 4221.4: perl log --grep='int' 7.31(7.04+0.21) 7.19(6.89+0.21) -1.6% 4221.6: fixed log --grep='uncommon' 6.93(6.59+0.32) 7.04(6.66+0.37) +1.6% 4221.7: basic log --grep='uncommon' 6.92(6.58+0.29) 7.08(6.75+0.29) +2.3% 4221.8: extended log --grep='uncommon' 6.92(6.55+0.31) 7.00(6.68+0.31) +1.2% 4221.9: perl log --grep='uncommon' 7.03(6.59+0.33) 7.12(6.73+0.34) +1.3% 4221.11: fixed log --grep='æ' 7.41(7.08+0.28) 7.05(6.76+0.29) -4.9% 4221.12: basic log --grep='æ' 7.39(6.99+0.33) 7.00(6.68+0.25) -5.3% 4221.13: extended log --grep='æ' 7.34(7.00+0.25) 7.15(6.81+0.31) -2.6% 4221.14: perl log --grep='æ' 7.43(7.13+0.26) 7.01(6.60+0.36) -5.7% log with -i: Test origin/master HEAD ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ 4221.1: fixed log -i --grep='int' 7.31(7.07+0.24) 7.23(7.00+0.22) -1.1% 4221.2: basic log -i --grep='int' 7.40(7.08+0.28) 7.19(6.92+0.20) -2.8% 4221.3: extended log -i --grep='int' 7.43(7.13+0.25) 7.27(6.99+0.21) -2.2% 4221.4: perl log -i --grep='int' 7.34(7.10+0.24) 7.10(6.90+0.19) -3.3% 4221.6: fixed log -i --grep='uncommon' 7.07(6.71+0.32) 7.11(6.77+0.28) +0.6% 4221.7: basic log -i --grep='uncommon' 6.99(6.64+0.28) 7.12(6.69+0.38) +1.9% 4221.8: extended log -i --grep='uncommon' 7.11(6.74+0.32) 7.10(6.77+0.27) -0.1% 4221.9: perl log -i --grep='uncommon' 6.98(6.60+0.29) 7.05(6.64+0.34) +1.0% 4221.11: fixed log -i --grep='æ' 7.85(7.45+0.34) 7.03(6.68+0.32) -10.4% 4221.12: basic log -i --grep='æ' 7.87(7.49+0.29) 7.06(6.69+0.31) -10.3% 4221.13: extended log -i --grep='æ' 7.87(7.54+0.31) 7.09(6.69+0.31) -9.9% 4221.14: perl log -i --grep='æ' 7.06(6.77+0.28) 6.91(6.57+0.31) -2.1% So as with e05b027627 ("grep: use PCRE v2 for optimized fixed-string search", 2019-06-26) there's a huge improvement in performance for "grep", but in "log" most of our time is spent elsewhere, so we don't notice it that much.
