Commit 75c42d8c authored by Linus Torvalds's avatar Linus Torvalds

Add a "max_size" parameter to diff_delta()

Anything that generates a delta to see if two objects are close usually
isn't interested in the delta ends up being bigger than some specified
size, and this allows us to stop delta generation early when that
happens.
