This is the worst case scenario of "git status" on webkit.git (182k
files, path name 74 byte long on average), hot cache, no SSD

Index v4 and split index (and the following read-cache daemon,
hopefully) should help reduce numbers of the 1st and 4th lines, I
expect to less than 50ms each line. lazy_init_name_hash could be taken
away with read-cache daemon also.

core.preloadindex can cut the total number of 2nd and 3rd lines by
half. Watchman should help in these two lines, but it should do better
than core.preloadindex.

wt_status_collect_changes_index() depends on how damaged cache-tree is
(in this case, totally scraped). watchman does not help this either.
We need to try to "heal" cache-tree as much as possible to reduce the

The last line could be a competition between watchman and my coming
"untracked cache" series. I expect to cut the number in that line at
least in half without external dependency.

Patch 2/3 did not seem to make it to the list by the way.. initial
reaction is storing the list of all paths seems too much, but I'll
need to play with it a bit to understand it.
