* The more library-ish parts of the codebase learned to work on the
in-core index-state instance that is passed in by their callers,
instead of always working on the singleton "the_index" instance.
* A test prerequisite defined by various test scripts with slightly
different semantics has been consolidated into a single copy and
made into a lazily defined one.

* After a partial clone, repeated fetches from promisor remote would
have accumulated many packfiles marked with .promisor bit without
getting them coalesced into fewer packfiles, hurting performance.
"git repack" now learned to repack them.

* "git diff --indent-heuristic" had a bad corner case performance.
(merge 301ef85401 sb/indent-heuristic-optim later to maint).
* The "--exec" option to "git rebase --rebase-merges" placed the exec
commands at wrong places, which has been corrected.
* "git verify-tag" and "git verify-commit" have been taught to use
the exit status of underlying "gpg --verify" to signal bad or
untrusted signature they found.
(merge 4e5dc9ca17 jc/gpg-status later to maint).
* "git mergetool" stopped and gave an extra prompt to continue after
the last path has been handled, which did not make much sense.
(merge d651a54b8a ng/mergetool-lose-final-prompt later to maint).
* Among the three codepaths we use O_APPEND to open a file for
appending, one used for writing GIT_TRACE output requires O_APPEND
implementation that behaves sensibly when multiple processes are
writing to the same file. POSIX emulation used in the Windows port
has been updated to improve in this area.
(merge d641097589 js/mingw-o-append later to maint).
* "git pull --rebase -v" in a repository with a submodule barfed as
an intermediate process did not understand what "-v(erbose)" flag
meant, which has been fixed.
(merge e84c3cf3dc sb/pull-rebase-submodule later to maint).
* Recent update to "git config" broke updating variable in a
subsection, which has been corrected.
(merge bff7df7a87 sb/config-write-fix later to maint).
* When "git rebase -i" is told to squash two or more commits into
one, it labeled the log message for each commit with its number.
It correctly called the first one "1st commit", but the next one
was "commit #1", which was off-by-one. This has been corrected.
(merge dd2e36ebac pw/rebase-i-squash-number-fix later to maint).
* "git rebase -i", when a 'merge <branch>' insn in its todo list
fails, segfaulted, which has been (minimally) corrected.
