    commit_tree: take a pointer/len pair rather than a const strbuf · 3ffefb54
    Jeff King authored
    While strbufs are pretty common throughout our code, it is
    more flexible for functions to take a pointer/len pair than
    a strbuf. It's easy to turn a strbuf into such a pair (by
    dereferencing its members), but less easy to go the other
    way (you can strbuf_attach, but that has implications about
    memory ownership).
    
    This patch teaches commit_tree (and its associated callers
    and sub-functions) to take such a pair for the commit
    message rather than a strbuf.  This makes passing the buffer
    around slightly more verbose, but means we can get rid of
    some dangerous strbuf_attach calls in the next patch.
