It's probably me doing something wrong (I ran it more than a couple
times so watchman must have loaded the whole thing). I got small
numbers in update_fs_cache() now.

I tried the worst case, every directory had an empty .gitignore. The
numbers did not change much. And I found out that because
add_excludes.. were called twice, not on every .gitignore because of
the condition "!(dir->flags & DIR_EXCLUDE_CMDL_ONLY)". So the number
of .gitignore does not matter (yet).

This is your quote from above, moved down a bit:

So you exclude files early and make the real read_directory() pass do
pretty much nothing. This is probably not a good idea. Assume that I
touch $TOP/.gitignore then do something other than "git status" (or
"git add") then I have to pay read_directory() cost.

Back to the open vs fs_cache_open and the number of .gitignore files
above. I touch $TOP/.gitignore then do "git status" to make it read
all .gitignore files (6k of them) and change between open and
fs_cache_open. I think the numbers still  do not make any visible
difference (~1620-1630ms).
