Yes you have to load some entries first. Even if a directory does not
match, we only know until at least the first file in the directory. OK
there might be problems because tree_entry_interesting expects all
entries in a directory to be memcmp sorted, without trailing slash for
subdirectories. I need to check again if v5 sort order is compatible..
