pack-check.c::verify_packfile(): don't run SHA-1 update on huge datav1.4.4.4
Running the SHA1_Update() on the whole packfile in a single call revealed an overflow problem we had in the SHA-1 implementation on POWER architecture some time ago, which was fixed with commit b47f509b (June 19, 2006). Other SHA-1 implementations may have a similar problem. The sliding mmap() series already makes chunked calls to SHA1_Update(), so this patch itself will become moot when it graduates to "master", but in the meantime, run the hash function in smaller chunks to prevent possible future problems.
