Denton Liu 554544276a *.[ch]: remove extern from function declarations using spatch
There has been a push to remove extern from function declarations.
Remove some instances of "extern" for function declarations which are
caught by Coccinelle. Note that Coccinelle has some difficulty with
processing functions with `__attribute__` or varargs so some `extern`
declarations are left behind to be dealt with in a future patch.

This was the Coccinelle patch used:

	type T;
	identifier f;
	- extern
	  T f(...);

and it was run with:

	$ git ls-files \*.{c,h} |
		grep -v ^compat/ |
		xargs spatch --sp-file contrib/coccinelle/noextern.cocci --in-place

Files under `compat/` are intentionally excluded as some are directly
copied from external sources and we should avoid churning them as much
as possible.

Derrick Stolee aca4240f6a prio-queue: add 'peek' operation
When consuming a priority queue, it can be convenient to inspect
the next object that will be dequeued without actually dequeueing
it. Our existing library did not have such a 'peek' operation, so
add it as prio_queue_peek().

Add a reference-level comparison in t/helper/test-prio-queue.c
so this method is exercised by Further, add
a test that checks the behavior when the compare function is NULL
(i.e. the queue becomes a stack).

Jeff King e8f91e3df8 prio-queue: make output stable with respect to insertion
If two items are added to a prio_queue and compare equal,
they currently come out in an apparently random order (this
order is deterministic for a particular sequence of
insertions and removals, but does not necessarily match the
insertion order). This makes it unlike using a date-ordered
commit_list, which is one of the main types we would like to
replace with it (because prio_queue does not suffer from
O(n) insertions).

We can make the priority queue stable by keeping an
insertion counter for each element, and using it to break
ties. This does increase the memory usage of the structure
(one int per element), but in practice it does not seem to
affect runtime. A best-of-five "git rev-list --topo-order"
on linux.git showed less than 1% difference (well within the
run-to-run noise).

In an ideal world, we would offer both stable and unstable
priority queues (the latter to try to maximize performance).
However, given the lack of a measurable performance
difference, it is not worth the extra code.

Junio C Hamano da24b1044f sort-in-topological-order: use prio-queue
Use the prio-queue data structure to implement a priority queue of
commits sorted by committer date, when handling --date-order.  The
structure can also be used as a simple LIFO stack, which is a good
match for --topo-order processing.

Junio C Hamano b4b594a315 prio-queue: priority queue of pointers to structs
Traditionally we used a singly linked list of commits to hold a set
of in-flight commits while traversing history.  The most typical use
of the list is to add commits that are newly discovered to it, keep
the list sorted by commit timestamp, pick up the newest one from the
list, and keep digging.  The cost of keeping the singly linked list
sorted is nontrivial, and this typical use pattern better matches a
priority queue.

Introduce a prio-queue structure, that can be used either as a LIFO
stack, or a priority queue.  This will be used in the next patch to
hold in-flight commits during sort-in-topological-order.

Tests and the idea to make it usable for any "void *" pointers to
"things" are by Jeff King.  Bugs are mine.
