describe: Delay looking up commits until searching for an inexact match
Now that struct commit.util is not used until after we've checked that the argument doesn't exactly match a tag, we can wait until then to look up the commits for each tag. This avoids a lot of I/O on --exact-match queries in repositories with many tags. For example, 'git describe --exact-match HEAD' becomes about 12 times faster on a cold cache (3.2s instead of 39s) in a linux-2.6 repository with 2000 packed tags. That is a huge win for the interactivity of the __git_ps1 shell prompt helper when on a detached HEAD. Signed-off-by: Anders Kaseorg <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
