Linus Torvalds [Thu, 15 Sep 2005 21:43:17 +0000 (14:43 -0700)]
[PATCH] Avoid wasting memory in git-rev-list

As pointed out on the list, git-rev-list can use a lot of memory.

One low-hanging fruit is to free the commit buffer for commits that we
parse. By default, parse_commit() will save away the buffer, since a lot
of cases do want it, and re-reading it continually would be unnecessary.
However, in many cases the buffer isn't actually necessary and saving it
just wastes memory.

We could just free the buffer ourselves, but especially in git-rev-list,
we actually end up using the helper functions that automatically add
parent commits to the commit lists, so we don't actually control the
commit parsing directly.

Instead, just make this behaviour of "parse_commit()" a global flag.
Maybe this is a bit tasteless, but it's very simple, and it makes a
noticable difference in memory usage.

Before the change:

[torvalds@g5 linux]$ /usr/bin/time git-rev-list v2.6.12..HEAD > /dev/null

after the change:

0inputs+0outputs (0major+2433minor)pagefaults 0swaps

note how the minor faults have decreased from 3714 pages to 2433 pages.
That's all due to the fewer anonymous pages allocated to hold the comment
buffers and their metadata.

Junio C Hamano [Thu, 8 Sep 2005 20:47:12 +0000 (13:47 -0700)]
Multi-backend merge driver.

The new command 'git merge' takes the current head and one or more
remote heads, with the commit log message for the automated case.

If the heads being merged are simple fast-forwards, it acts the
same way as the current 'git resolve'.  Otherwise, it tries
different merge strategies and takes the result from the one that
succeeded auto-merging, if there is any.

If no merge strategy succeeds auto-merging, their results are
evaluated for number of paths needed for hand resolving, and the
one with the least number of such paths is left in the working
tree.  The user is asked to resolve them by hand and make a
commit manually.

The calling convention from the 'git merge' driver to merge
strategy programs is very simple:

 - A strategy program is to be called 'git-merge-<strategy>'.

 - They take input of this form:

<common1> <common2> ... '--' <head> <remote1> <remote2>...

   That is, one or more the common ancestors, double dash, the
   current head, and one or more remote heads being merged into
   the current branch.

 - Before a strategy program is called, the working tree is
   matched to the current <head>.

 - The strategy program exits with status code 0 when it
   successfully auto-merges the given heads.  It should do
   update-cache for all the merged paths when it does so -- the
   index file will be used to record the merge result as a
   commit by the driver.

 - The strategy program exits with status code 1 when it leaves
   conflicts behind.  It should do update-cache for all the
   merged paths that it successfully auto-merged, and leave the
   cache entry in the index file as the same as <head> for paths
   it could not auto-merge, and leave its best-effort result
   with conflict markers in the working tree when it does so.

 - The strategy program exists with status code other than 0 or
   1 if it does not handle the given merge at all.

As examples, this commit comes with merge strategies based on
'git resolve' and 'git octopus'.

[PATCH] Portability fix for Solaris 10/x86

 * getdomainname unavailable there.
 * needs -lsocket for linkage.
 * needs __EXTENSIONS__ at the beginning of convert-objects.c

[JC: I've done this slightly differently from what Patrick originally
sent to the list and dropped the bit that deals with installations
that has curl header and library at non-default location.  I am
resisting the slipperly slope called autoconf.]

Big tool rename.

As promised, this is the "big tool rename" patch.  The primary differences
since 0.99.6 are:

  (1) git-*-script are no more.  The commands installed do not
      have any such suffix so users do not have to remember if
      something is implemented as a shell script or not.

  (2) Many command names with 'cache' in them are renamed with
      'index' if that is what they mean.

There are backward compatibility symblic links so that you and
Porcelains can keep using the old names, but the backward
compatibility support  is expected to be removed in the near
future.
