Please make sure that all commits in the patch series can be build
cleanly without any warnings (with '-Werror' or preferably with 'make
DEVELOPER=1') and pass the test suite.  This is important, because
unbuildable commits will cause trouble later on, when e.g. 'git
bisect' happens to pick such a commit.

In this case, the removal of the above loop removes all callsites of
the static functions get_permutations(), is_superset(), and
pll_free(), resulting the following compiler error:

  builtin/pack-redundant.c: At top level:
  builtin/pack-redundant.c:289:13: error: ‘pll_free’ defined but not used [-Werror=unused-function]
   static void pll_free(struct pll *l)
               ^
  builtin/pack-redundant.c:309:21: error: ‘get_permutations’ defined but not used [-Werror=unused-function]
   static struct pll * get_permutations(struct pack_list *list, int n)
                       ^
  builtin/pack-redundant.c:343:12: error: ‘is_superset’ defined but not used [-Werror=unused-function]
   static int is_superset(struct pack_list *pl, struct llist *list)
              ^

I see that the last patch in this series removes those three
unused functions, but that patch should be squashed into this one to
keep Git buildable with '-Werror' or DEVELOPER=1.

Furthermore, after building this patch (without '-Werror'), several
tests in 't5323-pack-redundant.sh' fail.  To avoid the test failure I
think the fourth patch ensuring a consistent sort order should be
squashed in as well.
