Move pushes_since_gc to Redis
What does this MR do?
This moves tracking of the pushes since the last Git GC to Redis to reduce DB load.
Are there points in the code the reviewer needs to double check?
Why was this MR needed?
Updating this column can lead to a lot of writes which in turn puts a lot of load on table vacuuming. For example, in the last hour alone we had 5067 UPDATEs for this column (per InfluxDB):
> select count(increment_pushes_since_gc_call_count) from sidekiq_transactions where time > now() - 1h; name: sidekiq_transactions -------------------------- time count 1473780996567714622 5067
