clone: open a shortcut for connectivity check

In order to make sure the cloned repository is good, we run "rev-list
--objects --not --all $new_refs" on the repository. This is expensive
on large repositories. This patch attempts to mitigate the impact in
this special case.

In the "good" clone case, we only have one pack. If all of the
following are met, we can be sure that all objects reachable from the
new refs exist, which is the intention of running "rev-list ...":

 - all refs point to an object in the pack
 - there are no dangling pointers in any object in the pack
 - no objects in the pack point to objects outside the pack

The second and third checks can be done with the help of index-pack as
a slight variation of --strict check (which introduces a new condition
for the shortcut: pack transfer must be used and the number of objects
large enough to call index-pack). The first is checked in
check_everything_connected after we get an "ok" from index-pack.

"index-pack + new checks" is still faster than the current "index-pack
+ rev-list", which is the whole point of this patch. If any of the
conditions fail, we fall back to the good old but expensive "rev-list
..". In that case it's even more expensive because we have to pay for
the new checks in index-pack. But that should only happen when the
other side is either buggy or malicious.

sys     0m35.812s      0m37.630s

This shortcut is not applied to shallow clones, partly because shallow
clones should have no more objects than a usual fetch and the cost of
rev-list is acceptable, partly to avoid dealing with corner cases when
grafting is involved.

This shortcut does not apply to unpack-objects code path either
because the number of objects must be small in order to trigger that
code path.
