xdiff/xprepare: use a smaller sample size for histogram diff

For histogram diff, we can afford a smaller sample size and thus a
poorer estimate of the number of lines, as the hash table (rhash) won't
be filled up/grown. This is safe as the final count of lines (xdf.nrecs)
will be updated correctly anyway by xdl_prepare_ctx().

This gives us a small boost in performance.
