2017-04-15string-list: use ALLOC_GROW macro when reallocing string_listJeff Hostetler
Use ALLOC_GROW() macro when reallocing a string_list array rather than simply increasing it by 32. This is a performance optimization. During status on a very large repo and there are many changes, a significant percentage of the total run time is spent reallocing the wt_status.changes array. This change decreases the time in wt_status_collect_changes_worktree() from 125 seconds to 45 seconds on my very large repository. This produced a modest gain on my 1M file artificial repo, but broke even on linux.git.
