As mentioned, the three-way case *should* be as trivial as the
following. It passes all the tests, and I verified that a conflicting
merge in the 100,000 file horror-case merged correctly (with the conflict
markers) in 0.687 seconds with this, so it works, but I'm lazy and
somebody else should double-check it [jc: followed all three-way merge
codepaths and verified it removes when it should].

Without this patch, the merge took 8.355 seconds, so this patch
really does make a huge difference for merge performance with lots and
lots of files, and we're not talking percentages, we're talking
orders-of-magnitude differences!

Now "unpack_trees()" is just fast enough that we don't need to avoid it
(although it's probably still a good idea to eventually convert it to use
the traverse_trees() infrastructure some day - just to avoid having
extraneous tree traversal functions).
