Speed up string sort with custom missing value #7005
Today if the user supplies a custom missing value for a string sort, we do it in an extremely slow way, not using ordinals but dereferencing bytes for every document. Ordinals are only used if the missing value is _first or _last.
Instead, use ordinals with custom missing values too.
