split-index: count the number of deleted entries
'struct split_index' contains the field 'nr_deletions', whose name with the 'nr_' prefix suggests that it contains the number of deleted cache entries. However, barring its initialization to 0, this field is only ever set to 1, indicating that there is at least one deleted entry, but not the number of deleted entries. Luckily, this doesn't cause any issues (other than confusing the reader, that is), because the only place reading this field uses it in the same sense, i.e.: 'if (si->nr_deletions)'. To avoid confusion, we could either rename this field to something like 'has_deletions' to make its name match its role, or make it a counter of deleted cache entries to match its name. Let's make it a counter, to keep it in sync with the related field 'nr_replacements', which does contain the number of replaced cache entries. This will also give developers debugging the split index code easy access to the number of deleted cache entries. Signed-off-by: SZEDER Gábor <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
