* "perf" test output can be sent to codespeed server.
(merge 19cf57a92e cc/codespeed later to maint).
* The build procedure for perl/ part has been greatly simplified by
weaning ourselves off of MakeMaker.
* In preparation for implementing narrow/partial clone, the machinery
for checking object connectivity used by gc and fsck has been
taught that a missing object is OK when it is referenced by a
packfile specially marked as coming from trusted repository that
promises to make them available on-demand and lazily.
* The machinery to clone & fetch, which in turn involves packing and
unpacking objects, has been told how to omit certain objects using
the filtering mechanism introduced by another topic. It now knows
to mark the resulting pack as a promisor pack to tolerate missing
objects, laying foundation for "narrow" clones.
* The first step to getting rid of mru API and using the
doubly-linked list API directly instead.
* Retire mru API as it does not give enough abstraction over
underlying list API to be worth it.
* Rewrite two more "git submodule" subcommands in C.
* The tracing machinery learned to report tweaking of environment
variables as well.

* Update Coccinelle rules to catch and optimize strbuf_addf(&buf, "%s", str)

* Prevent "clang-format" from breaking line after function return type.
(merge a3715d43e8 po/clang-format-functype-weight later to maint).
* The sequencer infrastructure is shared across "git cherry-pick",
"git rebase -i", etc., and has always spawned "git commit" when it
needs to create a commit. It has been taught to do so internally,
when able, by reusing the codepath "git commit" itself uses, which
gives performance boost for a few tens of percents in some sample
Also contains various documentation updates and code clean-ups.
