[PATCH v3 3/6] perf-lib.sh: make "./run <revisions>" use the correct gits




Fix a really bad regression in 0baf78e7bc ("perf-lib.sh: rely on
test-lib.sh for --tee handling", 2019-03-15). Since that change all
runs of different <revisions> of git have used the git found in the
user's $PATH, e.g. /usr/bin/git instead of the <revision> we just
built and wanted to performance test.

The problem starts with GIT_TEST_INSTALLED not working like our
non-perf tests with the "run" script. I.e. you can't run performance
tests against a given installed git. Instead we expect to use it
ourselves to point GIT_TEST_INSTALLED to the <revision> we just built.

However, we had been relying on '$(cd "$GIT_TEST_INSTALLED" && pwd)'
to resolve that relative $GIT_TEST_INSTALLED to an absolute
path *before* test-lib.sh was loaded, in cases where it was
e.g. "build/<rev>/bin-wrappers" and we wanted "<abs_path>build/...".

This change post-dates another proposed solution by a few days[1], I
didn't notice that version when I initially wrote this. I'm doing the
most minimal thing to solve the regression here, a follow-up change
will move this result prefix selection logic entirely into the "run"
script.

This makes e.g. these cases all work:

    ./run . $PWD/../../ origin/master origin/next HEAD -- <tests>

As well as just a plain one-off:

    ./run <tests>

And, since we're passing down the new GIT_PERF_DIR_MYDIR_REL we make
sure the bug relating to aggregate.perl not finding our files as
described in 0baf78e7bc doesn't happen again.

What *doesn't* work is setting GIT_TEST_INSTALLED to a relative path,
this will subtly fail in test-lib.sh. This has always been the case
even before 0baf78e7bc, and as documented in t/README the
GIT_TEST_INSTALLED variable should be set to an absolute path (needs
to be set "to the bindir", which is always absolute), and the "perf"
framework expects to munge it itself.

Perhaps that should be dealt with in the future to allow manually
setting GIT_TEST_INSTALLED, but as a preceding commit showed the user
can just use the "run" script, which'll also pick the right output
directory for the test results as expected by aggregate.perl.
