    Use PATH_MAX instead of MAXPATHLEN

    According to sys/paramh.h it's a "BSD name" for values defined in
    <limits.h>. Besides PATH_MAX seems to be more commonly used.

  1. Use blob_, commit_, tag_, and tree_type throughout.

    This replaces occurences of "blob", "commit", "tag", and "tree",
    where they're really used as type specifiers, which we already
    have defined global constants for.

    Add --temp and --stage=all options to checkout-index.

    Sometimes it is convient for a Porcelain to be able to checkout all
    unmerged files in all stages so that an external merge tool can be
    executed by the Porcelain or the end-user.  Using git-unpack-file
    on each stage individually incurs a rather high penalty due to the
    need to fork for each file version obtained.  git-checkout-index -a
    --stage=all will now do the same thing, but faster.

  1. "Assume unchanged" git

    This adds "assume unchanged" logic, started by this message in the list
    discussion recently:
    This is a workaround for filesystems that do not have lstat()
    that is quick enough for the index mechanism to take advantage
    of.  On the paths marked as "assumed to be unchanged", the user
    needs to explicitly use update-index to register the object name
    to be in the next commit.
    You can use two new options to update-index to set and reset the
    CE_VALID bit:
    	git-update-index --assume-unchanged path...
    	git-update-index --no-assume-unchanged path...
    These forms manipulate only the CE_VALID bit; it does not change
    the object name recorded in the index file.  Nor they add a new
    entry to the index.
    When the configuration variable "core.ignorestat = true" is set,
    the index entries are marked with CE_VALID bit automatically
     - update-index to explicitly register the current object name to the
       index file.
     - when update-index --refresh finds the path to be up-to-date.
     - when tools like read-tree -u and apply --index update the working
       tree file and register the current object name to the index file.
    The flag is dropped upon read-tree that does not check out the index
    entry.  This happens regardless of the core.ignorestat settings.
    Index entries marked with CE_VALID bit are assumed to be
    unchanged most of the time.  However, there are cases that
    CE_VALID bit is ignored for the sake of safety and usability:
     - while "git-read-tree -m" or git-apply need to make sure
       that the paths involved in the merge do not have local
       modifications.  This sacrifices performance for safety.
     - when git-checkout-index -f -q -u -a tries to see if it needs
       to checkout the paths.  Otherwise you can never check
       anything out ;-).
     - when git-update-index --really-refresh (a new flag) tries to
       see if the index entry is up to date.  You can start with
       everything marked as CE_VALID and run this once to drop
       CE_VALID bit for paths that are modified.
    Most notably, "update-index --refresh" honours CE_VALID and does
    not actively stat, so after you modified a file in the working
    tree, update-index --refresh would not notice until you tell the
    index about it with "git-update-index path" or "git-update-index
    --no-assume-unchanged path".
    This version is not expected to be perfect.  I think diff
    between index and/or tree and working files may need some
    adjustment, and there probably needs other cases we should
    automatically unmark paths that are marked to be CE_VALID.
    But the basics seem to work, and ready to be tested by people
    who asked for this feature.

  1. checkout: do not make a temporary copy of symlink target.

    If the index records an insanely long symbolic link, copying
    into the temporary would overflow the buffer (noticed by Mark
    Because read_sha1_file() terminates the returned buffer with NUL
    since late May 2005, there is no reason to copy it anymore.

  1. Return error when not checking out an entry due to dirtiness.

    Without -f flag, 'git-checkout-index foo.c' issued an error message
    when foo.c already existed in the working tree and did not match index.
    However it did not return an error from the underlying checkout_entry()
    function and resulted in a successful exit(0).

  1. Big tool rename.

    As promised, this is the "big tool rename" patch.  The primary differences
    since 0.99.6 are:
      (1) git-*-script are no more.  The commands installed do not
          have any such suffix so users do not have to remember if
          something is implemented as a shell script or not.
      (2) Many command names with 'cache' in them are renamed with
          'index' if that is what they mean.
    There are backward compatibility symblic links so that you and
    Porcelains can keep using the old names, but the backward
    compatibility support  is expected to be removed in the near

  1. Fix replacing of a directory with a file/symlink in git-checkout-cache

    The symlink case had never worked, and the file case was broken by the
    O_EXCL change because the error return changed from EISDIR to EEXIST.
    Fix both problems by just moving the test for an existing directory to a
    more logical place.

  2. Make "git-checkout" create files with O_EXCL

    We should always have unlinked any old ones before, but this just makes
    sure that we never over-write any old file.
    A quick "grep" now shows that all the core tools that open files for
    writing use O_EXCL, ie we never overwrite an existing file in place.

  1. [PATCH] Let umask do its work upon filesystem object creation.

    IIRC our strategy was to let the users' umask take care of the
    final mode bits.  This patch fixes places that deviate from it.
