[PATCH 3/3] commit-reach.h: add missing declarations (hdr-check)




Add the necessary #includes and forward declarations to allow the header
file to pass the 'hdr-check' target.

Note that, since this header includes the commit-slab implementation
header file (indirectly via commit-slab.h), some of the commit-slab
inline functions (e.g contains_cache_at_peek()) will not compile without
the complete type of 'struct commit'. Hence, we replace the forward
declaration of 'struct commit' with the an #include of the 'commit.h'
header file.

It is possible, using the 'commit-slab-{decl,impl}.h' files, to avoid
this inclusion of the 'commit.h' header. Commit a9f1f1f9f8 ("commit-slab.h:
code split", 2018-05-19) separated the commit-slab interface from its
implementation, to allow for the definition of a public commit-slab data
structure. This enabled us to avoid including the commit-slab implementation
in a header file, which could result in the replication of the commit-slab
functions in each compilation unit in which it was included.

Indeed, if you compile with optimizations disabled, then run this script:

  $ cat -n dup-static.sh
       1 #!/bin/sh
       2
       3 nm $1 | grep ' t ' | cut -d' ' -f3 | sort | uniq -c |
       4 	sort -rn | grep -v '      1'
  $

  $ ./dup-static.sh git | grep contains
       24 init_contains_cache_with_stride
       24 init_contains_cache
       24 contains_cache_peek
       24 contains_cache_at_peek
       24 contains_cache_at
       24 clear_contains_cache
  $

you will find 24 copies of the commit-slab routines for the contains_cache.
Of course, when you enable optimizations again, these duplicate static
functions (mostly) disappear. Compiling with gcc at -O2, leaves two static
functions, thus:

  $ nm commit-reach.o | grep contains_cache
  0000000000000870 t contains_cache_at_peek.isra.1.constprop.6
  $ nm ref-filter.o | grep contains_cache
  00000000000002b0 t clear_contains_cache.isra.14
  $

However, using a shared 'contains_cache' would result in all six of the
above functions as external public functions in the git binary. At present,
only three of these functions are actually called, so the trade-off
seems to favour letting the compiler inline the commit-slab functions.
