Pretty much identical.

Here are the timings (I should probably read t/perf/README and get
better numbers):

Best of ten
$ time git rev-list --all --objects >/dev/null

# master
git rev-list --all --objects > /dev/null  5.16s user 0.11s system 99%
cpu 5.277 total

git rev-list --all --objects > /dev/null  5.17s user 0.11s system 99%
cpu 5.299 total

# CommonDigest
git rev-list --all --objects > /dev/null  5.18s user 0.11s system 99%
cpu 5.301 total

The library startup cost is identical to master since at the end of
the day it's still libcrypto.

FWIW the way it's done in this patch still allows defining BLK_SHA1,
which is parity with how the Makefile behaves on Linux.
