Background: To tie Perforce changelists to Git commits, I add a note to a commit with the form "P4@123456". Later, I use the note to sync down the closest Perforce changelist matching the Git commit.

I search for these notes by getting a list of revisions:

        git rev-list --max-count=1000

I iterate those revisions and run git show and grep on each:

        git show -s --format=%N%n%s --show-notes=p4notes COMMIT

For short runs, this isn't so bad. For longer runs of commits (I just walked through approximately 100), it takes a long time. Running 'git show' is costing me about 7/10 of second, presumably because I am on Windows.

Is there a faster way to do this?
