ok i'm going nuts, every operation is taking at least 2-3 min.
i just tried git commit, it took around 2.5 mins. I understand
this is because of the huge number of files in the repo. But
my work is only limited to a subset of directories, is there scope
for optimization here, can i tell git that look for changes only
in thesee directories and don't worry about the rest.

The file system is on NFS, i am not sure if it is
encrypted, as it is from my organisation i don't have
the means to change any of that.
