I don't know about the slowness, but...

Git v2.14 uses the sha1collision-detection implementation of sha1 by
default. That has a bug that was fixed recently with:

  commit 4125f78222749cb8fc91115abec3ac83e5dfb194
  Author: Ævar Arnfjörð Bjarmason <>
  Date:   Tue May 14 00:17:01 2019 +0200
      sha1dc: update from upstream
      Update sha1dc from the latest version by the upstream
      maintainer[1]. See 07a20f569b ("Makefile: fix unaligned loads in
      sha1dc with UBSan", 2019-03-12) for the last update.
      This fixes an issue where HP-UX IA64 was wrongly detected as a
      Little-endian instead of a Big-endian system, see [2] and [3].

which looks like it would impact your system. You can either:

  1. Try v2.22.0-rc1, which will be the first release with that fix.

  2. Try cherry-picking the various fixes on top of v2.14.0:

       git checkout v2.14.0
       git cherry-pick 23e37f8e9d5961c0c8d52ac481693d3fca5309ce
       git cherry-pick 07a20f569b4b1690e717eaac0954007a8edfbfc2
       git cherry-pick 4125f78222749cb8fc91115abec3ac83e5dfb194

  3. Compile with another sha1 implementation. E.g.:

       # if you have openssl available; otherwise,
       # try BLK_SHA1
       echo 'OPENSSL_SHA1 = Yes' >config.mak

     Note that you won't be protected from collision attacks, but those
     are still impractically expensive to mount at this point. It may be
     a good tradeoff until you can upgrade to a more recent Git.
