This will make it easier to manage the buffer cache
independently of the "struct commit" objects. It also
shrinks "struct commit" by one pointer, which may be
helpful.

Unfortunately it does not reduce the max memory size of
something like "rev-list", because rev-list uses
get_cached_commit_buffer() to decide not to show each
commit's output (and due to the design of slab_at, accessing
the slab requires us to extend it, allocating exactly the
same number of buffer pointers we dropped from the commit
structs).
