[PATCH v2 3/3] commit-graph: reduce initial oid allocation




From: Derrick Stolee <dstolee@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>

While writing a commit-graph file, we store the full list of
commits in a flat list. We use this list for sorting and ensuring
we are closed under reachability.

The initial allocation assumed that (at most) one in four objects
is a commit. This is a dramatic over-count for many repos,
especially large ones. Since we grow the repo dynamically, reduce
this count by a factor of eight. We still set it to a minimum of
1024 before allocating.
