This one should do the trick. Let's use it instead.

Subject: [PATCH] bloom: encode out-of-bounds filters as non-empty

When a changed-path Bloom filter has either zero, or more than a
certain number (commonly 512) of entries, the commit-graph machinery
encodes it as "missing". More specifically, it sets the indices adjacent
in the BIDX chunk as equal to each other to indicate a "length 0"
filter; that is, that the filter occupies zero bytes on disk.

This has heretofore been fine, since the commit-graph machinery has no
need to care about these filters with too few or too many changed paths.
Both cases act like no filter has been generated at all, and so there is
no need to store them.

In a subsequent commit, however, the commit-graph machinery will learn
to only compute Bloom filters for some commits in the current
commit-graph layer. This is a change from the current implementation
which computes Bloom filters for all commits that are in the layer being
written. Critically for this patch, only computing some of the Bloom
filters means adding a third state for length 0 Bloom filters: zero
entries, too many entries, or "hasn't been computed".

It will be important for that future patch to distinguish between "not
representable" (i.e., zero or too-many changed paths), and "hasn't been
computed". In particular, we don't want to waste time recomputing
filters that have already been computed.

To that end, change how we store Bloom filters in the "computed but not
representable" category:

  - Bloom filters with no entries are stored as a single byte with all
    bits low (i.e., all queries to that Bloom filter will return
    "definitely not")

  - Bloom filters with too many entries are stored as a single byte with
    all bits set high (i.e., all queries to that Bloom filter will
    return "maybe").

These rules are sufficient to not incur a behavior change by changing
the on-disk representation of these two classes. Likewise, no
specification changes are necessary for the commit-graph format, either:

  - Filters that were previously empty will be recomputed and stored
    according to the new rules, and

  - old clients reading filters generated by new clients will interpret
    the filters correctly and be none the wiser to how they were
    generated.

Clients will invoke the Bloom machinery in more cases than before, but
this can be addressed by returning a NULL filter when all bits are set
high. This can be addressed in a future patch.

Finally, note that this does increase the size of on-disk commit-graphs,
but far less than other proposals. In particular, this is generally more
efficient than storing a bitmap for which commits haven't computed their
Bloom filters. Storing a bitmap incurs a penalty of one bit per commit,
whereas storing explicit filters as above incurs a penalty of one byte
per too-large or too-small commit.

In practice, these boundary commits likely occupy a small proportion of
the overall number of commits, and so the size penalty is likely smaller
than storing a bitmap for all commits.

A test to exercise filters which contain too many changed path entries
will be introduced in a subsequent patch.
