pack-bitmap-write: better reuse bitmaps

If the old bitmap file contains a bitmap for a given commit, then that
commit does not need help from intermediate commits in its history to
compute its final bitmap. Eject that commit from the walk and insert it
into a separate list of reusable commits that are eventually stored in
the list of commits for computing bitmaps.

This helps the repeat bitmap computation task, even if the selected
commits shift drastically. This helps when a previously-bitmapped commit
exists in the first-parent history of a newly-selected commit. Since we
stop the walk at these commits and we use a first-parent walk, it is
harder to walk "around" these bitmapped commits. It's not impossible,
but we can greatly reduce the computation time for many selected
commits.
