[PATCH v2 00/19] WIP object filtering for partial clone




From: Jeff Hostetler <jeffhost@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>

This WIP is a follow up to my earlier patch series to teach
pack-objects to omit large blobs from packfiles. [1]

Like the previous version, this version builds upon a suggestion from
Peff [2] to use the traverse_commit_list() machinery to allow custom
object filtering using a filter callback.  This hides the filtering
logic in list-objects.c and list-objects-filters.c and minimizes the
changes to actual commands, such as pack-objects.

This version adds that same filtering capability to rev-list allowing
filtering to be demonstrated without building a packfile.  Filtered
blobs are printed with a leading "~" (along with their sizes).

This version contains 3 filters:
1. filter-omit-all-blobs to exclude all blobs (trees and commits only).

2. filter-omit-large-blobs=<n>[kmg] to exclude blobs larger than <n>
   (but always including ".git*" special files).

3. filter-use-sparse=<blob-ish> to exclude blobs not needed by the
   corresponding sparse-checkout.

Sparse-checkout filtering is currently limited to filtering unneeded blobs.
A later enhancement should be able to also filter unneeded tree objects.

This version updates clone, fetch, fetch-pack, and upload-pack commands
to pass the additional object-filter parameters.

As a (possibly) temporary measure, some commands have been updated to
relax missing blob errors during consistency checks.  Maintining info
on missing blobs is currently being discussed in [3].

TODO
1. Incorporate with a patch series like [4] to dynamically fetch a
   missing blob from the server in read_object on demand.
2. Resolve missing blob consistency check issue.
3. Store filter options from clone in config or .git/info and default
   to them in subsequent fetches.
4. fsck, gc, and assorted commands.
5. testing.
