I'll dig some more.  It *should* be essentially the following times
taken together:

  $ time git log --raw -M --topo-order >/dev/null

  real    0m5.448s
  user    0m4.599s
  sys     0m0.794s
  $ time git log -L:get_name:builtin/describe.c >/dev/null

  real    0m0.832s
  user    0m0.796s
  sys     0m0.032s

  $ time git log -L:get_name:builtin-describe.c 81b50f3ce40^ >/dev/null

  real    0m0.489s
  user    0m0.465s
  sys     0m0.022s

So I'm losing a factor of about 4 somewhere, which I can't explain right

It could be improved further if --follow was fixed, because then the
first step should be much faster than diffing *all* the trees.
