A 420k binary blob has become ~500k base85 binary patch, which is
larger than 100k.

For today's integration, I have the one from Linus only because it
came earlier and today's integration cycle was already running.  I
agree with this series that disables the safe-hash thing.

I am wondering if we should queue another one for .travis.yml on top
to force use of USE_SHA1DC=YesPlease during the tests.  I expect
that we'd be encouraging its use for ordinary users without any
specific needs in the release notes in 2.13 release.
