tree_entry(): new tree-walking helper function
This adds a "tree_entry()" function that combines the common operation of doing a "tree_entry_extract()" + "update_tree_entry()". It also has a simplified calling convention, designed for simple loops that traverse over a whole tree: the arguments are pointers to the tree descriptor and a name_entry structure to fill in, and it returns a boolean "true" if there was an entry left to be gotten in the tree. This allows tree traversal with struct tree_desc desc; struct name_entry entry; desc.buf = tree->buffer; desc.size = tree->size; while (tree_entry(&desc, &entry) { ... use "entry.{path, sha1, mode, pathlen}" ... } which is not only shorter than writing it out in full, it's hopefully less error prone too. [ It's actually a tad faster too - we don't need to recalculate the entry pathlength in both extract and update, but need to do it only once. Also, some callers can avoid doing a "strlen()" on the result, since it's returned as part of the name_entry structure. However, by now we're talking just 1% speedup on "git-rev-list --objects --all", and we're definitely at the point where tree walking is no longer the issue any more. ] NOTE! Not everybody wants to use this new helper function, since some of the tree walkers very much on purpose do the descriptor update separately from the entry extraction. So the "extract + update" sequence still remains as the core sequence, this is just a simplified interface. We should probably add a silly two-line inline helper function for initializing the descriptor from the "struct tree" too, just to cut down on the noise from that common "desc" initializer.
