    mergesort: rename it to llist_mergesort()

    gitster committed
    Even though the function is generic enough, <anything>sort() inherits
    connotations from the standard function qsort() that sorts an array.
    Rename it to llist_mergesort() and describe the external interface in
    its header file.
    This incidentally avoids name clashes with mergesort() some platforms
    declare in, and contaminate user namespace with, their <stdlib.h>.

    add mergesort() for linked lists

    René Scharfe committed with gitster
    This adds a generic bottom-up mergesort implementation for singly linked
    lists.  It was inspired by Simon Tatham's webpage on the topic[1], but
    not so much by his implementation -- for no good reason, really, just a
    case of NIH.
