improve depth heuristic for maximum delta size

This provides a linear decrement on the penalty related to delta depth
instead of being an 1/x function.  With this another 5% reduction is
observed on packs for both the GIT repo and the Linux kernel repo, as
well as fixing a pack size regression in another sample repo I have.
