This patch allows git-svn to fetch successfully using the
serf library when given an https?: url to fetch from.

Unfortunately some svn servers do not seem to be configured
well for use with the serf library.  This can cause fetching
to take longer compared to the neon library or actually
cause timeouts during the fetch.  When timeouts occur
git-svn can be safely restarted to fetch more revisions.

A new temp_is_locked function has been added to Git.pm
to facilitate using the minimal number of temp files
possible when using serf.

The problem that occurs when running git-svn fetch using
the serf library is that the previously used temp file
is not always unlocked before the next temp file needs
to be used.

To work around this problem, a new temp name is used
if the temp name that would otherwise be chosen is
currently locked.

Version v2 of the patch introduced a bug when changing the _temp_cache
function to use the new temp_is_locked function at the suggestion of a
reviewer.  That has now been resolved.

The temp_is_locked function can be used to determine whether
or not a given name previously passed to temp_acquire is
currently locked.

From: "Kyle J. McKay" <mackyle@gmail.com>

When attempting to git-svn fetch files from an svn https?: url using
the serf library (the only choice starting with svn 1.8) the following
errors can occur:

Temp file with moniker 'svn_delta' already in use at Git.pm line 1250
Temp file with moniker 'git_blob' already in use at Git.pm line 1250

David Rothenberger <daveroth@acm.org> has determined the cause to
be that ra_serf does not drive the delta editor in a depth-first
manner [...]. Instead, the calls come in this order:

1. open_root
2. open_directory
3. add_file
4. apply_textdelta
5. add_file
6. apply_textdelta

When using the ra_serf access method, git-svn can end up needing
to create several temp files before the first one is closed.

This change causes a new temp file moniker to be generated if the
one that would otherwise have been used is currently locked.

Thanks; I've queued this version to 'pu' at least tentatively.

Is everybody who discussed the issue happy with the direction of
this patch?

There's a problem with this use of temp_is_locked. There is an else
clause right after this:

	} else {
		if (defined $$temp_fd) {
			# then we're here because of a closed handle.

Prior to the patch, the comment is correct, but after the patch, the
if block may also be entered if the file is open but locked. This is
because temp_is_locked checks that the temp file is defined, open,
and locked.

This issue leads to lots of 

  Temp file 'svn_delta_3360_0' was closed. Opening replacement. 

messages for me.

Reverting the change in _temp_cache solves the problem for me.
Adding an " && !$$temp_fd->opened" clause to the if statement also
works, but this is less efficient.

That change was made as a result of this feedback:

So I think the answer is it does not make sense for _temp_cache to  
call this helper.

Will release a v4 in just a moment with that single change reverted.

Thanks for looking into it.

Sorry for the confusion.  The point of my question was an example of a
way to make sure the internal API stays easy to understand.  But it
seems to have backfired, and this is a small enough isolated change
that I think it's okay to say "let's clean it up later".

> Will release a v4 in just a moment with that single change reverted.
