pathspec: apply "*.c" optimization from exclude
When a pattern contains only a single asterisk as wildcard, e.g. "foo*bar", after literally comparing the leading part "foo" with the string, we can compare the tail of the string and make sure it matches "bar", instead of running fnmatch() on "*bar" against the remainder of the string. -O2 build on linux-2.6, without the patch: $ time git rev-list --quiet HEAD -- '*.c' real 0m40.770s user 0m40.290s sys 0m0.256s With the patch $ time ~/w/git/git rev-list --quiet HEAD -- '*.c' real 0m34.288s user 0m33.997s sys 0m0.205s The above command is not supposed to be widely popular. It's chosen because it exercises pathspec matching a lot. The point is it cuts down matching time for popular patterns like *.c, which could be used as pathspec in other places.
