[PATCH v5 4/5] pack-redundant: consistent sort method




From: Jiang Xin <zhiyou.jx@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

SZEDER reported that test case t5323 has different test result on MacOS.
This is because `cmp_pack_list_reverse` cannot give identical result
when two pack being sorted has the same size of remaining_objects.

Changes to the sorting function will make consistent test result for
t5323.

The new algorithm to find redundant packs is a trade-off to save memory
resources, and the result of it may be different with old one, and may
be not the best result sometimes.  Update t5323 for the new algorithm.
