cext: obtain reference to index entry type
Needs RevisionPublic

Group Reviewers

We recently introduced a dedicated type for index entries in the
pure Python implementation.

This commit tells the revlog C code about that type.

We register the type on the parsers module so it is exposed to
importers of the module.

In addition, we store a reference to the type on revlog index
instances. In theory, we could grab the reference from the
module. However, this requires a fair bit of C code. It is easier
to just re-import the original module and get a ref from there. This
also avoids problems with caching a type on a reload()d module.

We hold off incrementing the version of the "parsers" extension
because nothing in core relies on the new API yet.

It's really minor nit, but we have to increment the version since new
compiled module doesn't work with old pure.parsers module, which
provides no IndexV1Entry type.


Can we be sure that this IndexV1Entry is identical to self->entrytype
after reloading Python modules?

In theory, there could be a mismatch.

If this module is loaded, its IndexV1Entry will refer to whatever mercurial.pure.parsers.IndexV1Entry is. If mercurial.pure.parsers is then reloaded and its IndexV1Entry changes and a revlog index type is created, its IndexV1Entry will be the new one from the reloaded mercurial.pure.parsers.

Since I plan to replace the Python-implemented type with a C backed type, I'm inclined to not care about this.
