Do not commit an unchanged tree in non-merge mode.

While regular mode is already handled by git-runstatus, this cheap check
allows to avoid costly git-runstatus later.  Also, amend mode needs
special attention, because git-runstatus return value is ignored.
The idea is that amend should not commit an unchanged tree,
one should just remove the top commit using git-reset instead.

A laudable goal.  git-gui also does this.  Turns out the other
checks within git-gui prevent the user from ever getting that far.
I probably should remove the empty tree check as it costs CPU time
to get the old tree.  But I'd rather have the safety check.

NO.  `git commit --amend` is *often* used for fixing the commit
message.  Or adding additional detail.  Forcing the user to do
a `git reset --soft HEAD^ && git commit --amend` just because
you don't want git-commit to make an "empty commit" (which it
doesn't usually like to do now anyway!) is a major step back
in functionality.

NACK.

The better way to get the old tree would be this:

		current_tree="$(git rev-parse "$current${amend:+^}^{tree}" 2>/dev/null

as it avoids the tool from needing to know about the internal
representation of a commit object.  It also avoids an entire
fork+exec of a sed process.

That message is a bad idea.  Doing a mixed mode reset will also
reset the index, causing the user to lose any changes that had
already been staged.  This may actually be difficult for him/her to
recover from if they have used `git add -i` or git-gui to stage only
certain hunks of files, or if their working tree has been further
modified after the commit but they want to go back and amend the
message only of the prior commit.

You see, my proposed change does not affect this usage case at all.

If that "additional" detail just undoes the latest commit, why should
"git commit --amend" welcome such thing?  I did not get your pint here.

I suppose that helping users to avoid doing really stupid things
does not look as a major step back in functionality, just otherwise.

Would "git reset --soft HEAD^" advice be better than first one?
Could you suggest a better message, please?

Ok, I'm seeing it, and there are serious problems in the diffcore-rename 
code.

The problems include things like actual overflow in 31 bits (a signed 
integer) from the multiplication of "num_create * num_src".

But you'll almost certainly never even get there, because you'd long since 
have given up on the O(n^2) behaviour of the "cheap tests", that aren't 
really cheap enough, if only because even just comparing the 20-byte SHA1 
hashes will basically take forever since they will always miss in the 
cache for lots of names.

So yes, we really *have* to have a rename limit, even if it's only to 
avoid the technical bug of overflowing the multiplication.

Testing this actually showed another bug too: "git diff" would actually 
never call "diff_setup_done() at all, if "diffopt.output_format" had been 
set explicitly to something. So doing a "git diff --stat" would totally 
ignore all the sanity checks (and, what caused me to find it, the 
initialization of "diffopt.rename_limit") that diff_setup_done() is 
supposed to do!

So I'm going to send out two patches - one to fix the "diff_setup_done()" 
bug, and one that replaces the default rename_limit with something saner. 
Both seem to be real bugs.

For some inexplicable reason, "git diff" would call "diff_setup_done()" 
iff we hadn't given an explicit output format.

That makes no sense, since much of what diff_setup_done() does is exactly 
about checking the output format!

This just moves the call to "diff_setup_done()" out of the conditional, 
and to where we've actually done all of the diffopt changes.

This adds more proper rename detection limits. Instead of just checking 
the limit against the number of potential rename destinations, we verify 
that the rename matrix (which is what really matters) doesn't grow 
ridiculously large, and we also make sure that we don't overflow when 
doing the matrix size calculation.

This also changes the default limits from unlimited, to a rename matrix 
that is limited to 100 entries on a side. You can raise it with the config 
entry, or by using the "-l<n>" command line flag, but at least the default 
is now a sane number that avoids spending lots of time (and memory) in 
situations that likely don't merit it.

The choice of default value is of course very debatable. Limiting the 
rename matrix to a 100x100 size will mean that even if you have just one 
obvious rename, but you also create (or delete) 10,000 files, the rename 
matrix will be so big that we disable the heuristics. Sounds reasonable to 
me, but let's see if people hit this (and, perhaps more importantly, 
actually *care*) in real life.

Due to the overflow issue (and yes, Dmitry's test-case actually triggered 
an overflow even on 64-bit machines, because the math was done on "int" 
types), I really think this was a real bug.

Now, whether this is necessarily the right way to fix it, I dunno, but it 
also *does* fix the old broken limit handling that was based just on the 
number of target files, and didn't take the number of potential source 
files into account.

But the fix to that logic also means that the meaning of "-l<n>" changes 
subtly. For the better, I think, but changes nonetheless.

I'd also like to apologize to the change in wt-status.c, but that code 
doesn't use the regular diffopt setup logic, so it really is a special 
case and needs to be handled as such. Do we want to teach "git runstatus" 
to actually honor command line flags for diff generation etc? That's a 
separate question, this patch just makes it use the same rename default as 
the normal diffs now do.

We did not even have _any_ setup_done() call in "git diff"
itself in the original, because setup_revisions() has its own
call to setup_done(), and it always called setup_revisions()
before you reached that part of the code you have in your patch.
Commit 047fbe906b375e8a3a7564ad0e4443f62dd528a2 ("builtin-diff:
turn recursive on when defaulting to --patch format.") added the
call to setup_done() only when we are defaulting to output
format, to re-validate the consistency of output format options.

The screw-up was commit fcfa33ec905fcde1c16e7cbbe00d7147b89f1f01
(diff: make more cases implicit --no-index) that made the call
to setup_revisions() conditional if setup_diff_no_index()
decides to take over, but it forgot that setup_diff_no_index()
does not call setup_done().

So I tend to think the attached is a better fix.

I agree with that.  At the same time we might want to revisit
the earlier "build a full matrix and pick the best ones"
approach commit 5c97558c9a813a0a775c438a79cfc438def00c22 (Detect
renames in diff family) introduced.

A tangent.

I've been thinking about updating the diffcore-rename for some
time to give bonus points to a filepair whose neighbors are
detected to be renames.  E.g. if you have this pair of preimage
and postimage:

	(preimage)		(postimage)

	arch/i386/foo.c		arch/x86/foo-32.c
	arch/i386/bar.c		arch/x86/bar-32.c
	arch/i386/baz.c		arch/x86/baz-32.c

and if foo.c and bar.c are found to be very similar to foo-32.c
and bar-32.c while baz.c and baz-32.c are not that much, we may
want to take hints from the movement of neighbouring files and
boost the similarity score between baz.c and baz-32.c pair.

It would be a quite an interesting coding challenge for anybody
who wants to get his hands dirty.  Would this be worth it in
practice?  I dunno.

Ahh, yes, that explains the conditional. 

But whatever gets us to actually verify our options, and fill in the right 
defaults is ok by me!

Side note: by "make sure", I don't really mean a total guarantee.

We could be even more careful here. In particular:

 - we later do end up allocating the matrix with 

	sizeof(*mx) * num_create * num_src

   and I didn't actually fix the overflow that is possible due to the
   "sizeof(*mx)" multiplication.

 - even after we've checked that not *both* of the source and destination 
   counts are larger than the rename_limit, we could still overflow the 
   multiplication in just the limit check.

.. but with the rename_limit being set to 100, in practice neither of 
these are really even close to realistic (ie you'd need to have less than 
100 new files, and deleted over twenty million files to overflow, or vice 
versa).

So with a rename_limit of 100, it's all good (I'm pretty sure you'd have 
*other* issues long before you'd hit the integer overflows on renames ;)

But if somebody sets the rename_limit to something bigger, it gets 
increasingly easier to screw it up.

If somebody wants to be *really* careful, they'd need to do something like

	unsigned long max;

	/* This isn't going to overflow, since we limited 'rename_limit' */
	max = rename_limit * rename_limit;

	/*
	 * But we should also check that multiplying by "sizeof(*mx)" 
	 * won't make it overlof either..
	 */
	while ((sizeof(*mx) * max) / sizeof(*mx) != max)
		max >>= 1;

	/*
	 * And then avoid multiplying "rename_dst_nr" and "rename_src_nr"
	 * together by turning it into a division instead
	 */
	if (max / rename_dst_nr > rename_src_nr)
		goto cleanup;

but the patch I sent out was the "obvious" first one that at least avoided 
the overflow for the triggerable case that Dmitry had, and as per above 
likely in all reasonable cases...

Final note (I promise): the patch I sent out took "git runstatus" times on 
the workload I replicated from Dmitry down from "so long you'd ^C it" to 
about two seconds..

So I wanted to point out that this was not just the correctness issue of 
the overflow, but that the rename limiting really does need to be done for 
purely practical time reasons - doing the math in 64 bits would have 
avoided the overflow, but wouldn't have avoided the real reason for not 
wanting to do these kinds of things in the first place!

Sorry, my explanation only explains about missing setup_done()
when --no-index is used, but does not explain _if_ you actually
found that setup_done() was not called for you when you did a
real life test.  Was it only from code inspection, or did you
hit a case where setup_done() is not run?  If the latter then
there is something else going on, as I cannot think of a way to
call setup_revisions() and not have it call setup_done()...

Hmm. Mea culpa. What seems to have happened is that I ran things under 
gdb, and noticed that the default rename_limit hadn't been correctly set: 
but now that I look more at it, that particular session was probably from 
"git runstatus", not "git diff".

So yeah, ignore my 1/2. It was almost certainly based on a bogus debugging 
session, before I noticed that wt-status.c doesn't use the normal diff 
stuff at all..
