t3306,t5304: avoid clock skew issues

On systems where the local time and file modification time may be out of
sync (e.g. test directory on NFS) t3306 and t5305 can fail because prune
compares times such as "now" (client time) with file modification times
(server times for remote file systems). I.e., these are spurious test
failures.

Avoid this by setting the relevant modification times to the local time.

Noticed on a system with as little as 2s time skew.

Jonathan Nieder [Fri, 18 Mar 2011 20:23:52 +0000 (15:23 -0500)]
compat: add missing #include <sys/resource.h>

Starting with commit c793430 (Limit file descriptors used by packs,
2011-02-28), git uses getrlimit to tell how many file descriptors it
can use.  Unfortunately it does not include the header declaring that
function, resulting in compilation errors:

 sha1_file.c: In function 'open_packed_git_1':
 sha1_file.c:718: error: storage size of 'lim' isn't known
 sha1_file.c:721: warning: implicit declaration of function 'getrlimit'
 sha1_file.c:721: error: 'RLIMIT_NOFILE' undeclared (first use in this function)
 sha1_file.c:718: warning: unused variable 'lim'

The standard header to include for this is <sys/resource.h> (which on
some systems itself requires declarations from <sys/types.h> or
<sys/time.h>).  Probably the problem was missed until now because in
current glibc sys/resource.h happens to be included by sys/wait.h.

MinGW does not provide sys/resource.h (and compat/mingw takes care of
providing getrlimit some other way), so add the missing #include to
the "#ifndef __MINGW32__" block in git-compat-util.h.

submodule: process conflicting submodules only once

During a merge module_list returns conflicting submodules several times
(stage 1,2,3) which caused the submodules to be used multiple times in
git submodule init, sync, update and status command.

There are 5 callers of module_list; they all read (mode, sha1, stage,
path) tuple, and most of them care only about path.  As a first level
approximation, it should be Ok (in the sense that it does not make things
worse than it currently is) to filter the duplicate paths from module_list
output, but some callers should change their behaviour when the merge in
the superproject still has conflicts.

Notice the higher-stage entries, and emit only one record from
module_list, but while doing so, mark the entry with "U" (not [0-3]) in
the $stage field and null out the SHA-1 part, as the object name for the
lowest stage does not give any useful information to the caller, and this
way any caller that uses the object name would hopefully barf.  Then
update the codepaths for each subcommands this way:

 - "update" should not touch the submodule repository, because we do not
   know what commit should be checked out yet.

 - "status" reports the conflicting submodules as 'U000...000' and does
   not recurse into them (we might later want to make it recurse).

 - The command called by "foreach" may want to do whatever it wants to do
   by noticing the merged status in the superproject itself, so feed the
   path to it from module_list as before, but only once per submodule.

 - "init" and "sync" are unlikely things to do while the superproject is
   still not merged, but as long as a submodule is there in $path, there
   is no point skipping it. It might however want to take the merged
   status of .gitmodules into account, but that is outside of the scope of
   this topic.

gitweb: Fix handling of fractional timezones in parse_date

Fractional timezones, like -0330 (NST used in Canada) or +0430
(Afghanistan, Iran DST), were not handled properly in parse_date; this
means values such as 'minute_local' and 'iso-tz' were not generated
correctly.

This was caused by two mistakes:

* sign of timezone was applied only to hour part of offset, and not
  as it should be also to minutes part (this affected only negative
  fractional timezones).

* 'int $h + $m/60' is 'int($h + $m/60)' and not 'int($h) + $m/60',
  so fractional part was discarded altogether ($h is hours, $m is
  minutes, which is always less than 60).

Note that positive fractional timezones +0430, +0530 and +1030 can be
found as authortime in git.git repository itself.

For example http://repo.or.cz/w/git.git/commit/88d50e7 had authortime
of "Fri, 8 Jan 2010 18:48:07 +0000 (23:48 +0530)", which is not marked
with 'atnight', when "git show 88d50e7" gives correct author date of
"Sat Jan 9 00:18:07 2010 +0530".

stash: copy the index using --index-output instead of cp -p

'git stash create' must operate with a temporary index. For this purpose,
it used 'cp -p' to create a copy. -p is needed to preserve the timestamp
of the index file. Now Jakob Pfender reported a certain combination of
a Linux NFS client, OpenBSD NFS server, and cp implementation where this
operation failed.

Luckily, the first operation in git-stash after copying the index is to
call 'git read-tree'. Therefore, use --index-output instead of 'cp -p'
to write the copy of the index.

--index-output requires that the specified file is on the same volume as
the source index, so that the lock file can be rename()d. For this reason,
the name of the temporary index is constructed in a way different from the
other temporary files. The code path of 'stash -p' also needs a temporary
index, but we do not use the new name because it does not depend on the

diff --quiet: disable optimization when --diff-filter=X is used

The code notices that the caller does not want any detail of the changes
and only wants to know if there is a change or not by specifying --quiet.
And it breaks out of the loop when it knows it already found any change.

When you have a post-process filter (e.g. --diff-filter), however, the
path we found to be different in the previous round and set HAS_CHANGES
bit may end up being uninteresting, and there may be no output at the end.
The optimization needs to be disabled for such case.

Note that the f245194 (diff: change semantics of "ignore whitespace"
options, 2009-05-22) already disables this optimization by refraining
from setting HAS_CHANGES when post-process filters that need to inspect
the contents of the files (e.g. -S, -w) in diff_change() function.

git stash: show status relative to current directory

git status shows modified paths relative to current directory, so it's
possible to copy&paste them directly, even if you're in a subdirectory.

But "git stash apply" always shows status from root of git repository.
This is misleading because you can't use the paths without modifications.

This is caused by changing directory to root of repository at the
beginning of git stash.

This patch makes git stash show status relative to current directory.
Instead of removing the "cd to toplevel", which would affect whole
script and might have other side-effects, the fix is to change directory
temporarily back to original dir just before displaying status.

Make the default abbrev length configurable

The default of 7 comes from fairly early in git development, when
seven hex digits was a lot (it covers about 250+ million hash
values). Back then I thought that 65k revisions was a lot (it was what
we were about to hit in BK), and each revision tends to be about 5-10
new objects or so, so a million objects was a big number.

These days, the kernel isn't even the largest git project, and even
the kernel has about 220k revisions (_much_ bigger than the BK tree
ever was) and we are approaching two million objects. At that point,
seven hex digits is still unique for a lot of them, but when we're
talking about just two orders of magnitude difference between number
of objects and the hash size, there _will_ be collisions in truncated
hash values. It's no longer even close to unrealistic - it happens all
the time.

We should both increase the default abbrev that was unrealistically
small, _and_ add a way for people to set their own default per-project
in the git config file.

This is the first step to first make it configurable; the default of 7
is not raised yet.
