[PATCH v6 21/21] commit-graph: update design document

- Subject: [PATCH v6 21/21] commit-graph: update design document
The commit-graph feature is now integrated with 'fsck' and 'gc',
so remove those items from the "Future Work" section of the
commit-graph design document.
Also remove the section on lazy-loading trees, as that was completed
in an earlier patch series.

- The commit graph feature currently does not honor commit grafts. This can
be remedied by duplicating or refactoring the current graft logic.
-- The 'commit-graph' subcommand does not have a "verify" mode that is

- After computing and storing generation numbers, we must make graph
walks aware of generation numbers to gain the performance benefits they
enable. This will mostly be accomplished by swapping a commit-date-ordered

-- Currently, parse_commit_gently() requires filling in the root tree
- object for a commit. This passes through lookup_tree() and consequently
- lookup_object(). Also, it calls lookup_commit() when loading the parents.
- These method calls check the ODB for object existence, even if the
- consumer does not need the content. For example, we do not need the
- tree contents when computing merge bases. Now that commit parsing is
- removed from the computation time, these lookup operations are the
- slowest operations keeping graph walks from being fast. Consider
- loading these objects without verifying their existence in the ODB and
- only loading them fully when consumers need them. Consider a method
- such as "ensure_tree_loaded(commit)" that fully loads a tree before
- using commit->tree.
-- The current design uses the 'commit-graph' subcommand to generate the graph.
- When this feature stabilizes enough to recommend to most users, we should
- add automatic graph writes to common operations that create many commits.
- For example, one could compute a graph on 'clone', 'fetch', or 'repack'
- A server could provide a commit graph file as part of the network protocol
to avoid extra calculations by clients. This feature is only of benefit if
the user is willing to trust the file, because verifying the file is correct
