That is, something along this line.  We may want to unify these two
functions even more, but I do not offhand see a good way to do so.

Subject: [PATCH] log -S/-G: unify the short-cut logic a bit more

The fill_one() function is responsible for finding and filling the
textconv filter as necessary, and is called by diff_grep() function
that implements "git log -G<pattern>".

The has_changes() function calls get_textconv() for two sides being
compared, before it checks to see if it was asked to perform the
pickaxe limiting with the -S option.  Move the code around to avoid
this wastage.

By adding get_textconv() to diff_grep() and relieving fill_one() of
responsibility to find the textconv filter, we can avoid calling
get_textconv() twice; fill_one() no longer has to be passed a
pointer to a pointer to textconv.

The reason has_changes() calls get_textconv() early is because it
wants to compare two textconv filters on both sides.  When comparing
the two sides that are otherwise identical, if the same textconv
applies to both sides, we know pickaxe (either -S or -G) would not
find anything before applying the textconv and comparing the result.

Teach the same short-circuit logic to diff_grep() as well.  The code
in these two functions become more similar as the result.
