[PATCH 4/4] mark_parents_uninteresting(): avoid most allocation




Commit 941ba8db57 (Eliminate recursion in setting/clearing
marks in commit list, 2012-01-14) used a clever double-loop
to avoid allocations for single-parent chains of history.
However, it did so only when following parents of parents
(which was an uncommon case), and _always_ incurred at least
one allocation to populate the list of pending parents in
the first place.

We can turn this into zero-allocation in the common case by
iterating directly over the initial parent list, and then
following up on any pending items we might have discovered.

Again, try "-w" for more readability.
