The git fetch builtin includes a calculation to see if the ref values were
forced updates (i.e. if the old value is not in the history of the new
value). In a repo with many refs and a fast-moving history, this calculation
can be very slow.

This series adds a new --[no-]show-forced-updates option to 'git fetch' to
avoid this calculation when requested. Further:

 1. Add a new fetch.showForcedUpdates config setting that provides a default
    value for --[no-]show-forced-updates.
    
    
 2. Add a new advice.fetchShowForcedUpdates config setting associated with a
    warning that suggests fetch.showForcedUpdates when the calculation takes
    a long time, or warns about the lack of "(forced update)" messages.
    
    
 3. Add the command-line options to 'git pull'.
    
    

We have been running with these commits in microsoft/git for a while now and
no user has complained that the messages were removed (VFS for Git sets 
fetch.showForcedUpdates=false by default). Users have complained about the
warning messages always appearing, so this series includes the advice config
setting. Further, I added a test to demonstrate the behavior change between
the two options.

The fetch.showForcedUpdates config setting is a candidate to be added to the
proposed "large repo" meta-config setting previously discussed [1]. I'm
putting this out for independent review as it is much smaller compared to
the potential of that series.

Thanks, -Stolee
