ENH: Avoid tag updating when ctags output has identical fingerprint.
We can avoid the lengthy and blocking update of the tags database when the ctags output returns the same information as before; i.e. nothing tag-relevant has been changed since the last update. Since 7.3.816, Vim has a sha256() function that allows us to quickly calculate a fingerprint over the ctags output. When that is not available, only handle the special case of a (covered) file that has no tags at all (as calculating a hash in Vimscript is costly and would probably defeat the intended speedup).
