Description

diff: do not concatenate immutable bytes while building a/b bodies (issue6445)

Use bytearray instead. I don't know what's changed since Python 2, but bytes
concatenation is 100x slow on Python 3.

% python2.7 -m timeit -s "s = b''" "for i in range(10000): s += b'line'"
1000 loops, best of 3: 321 usec per loop

% python3.9 -m timeit -s "s = b''" "for i in range(10000): s += b'line'"
5 loops, best of 5: 39.2 msec per loop

Benchmark using tailwind.css (measuring the fast path, a is empty):

% HGRCPATH=/dev/null python2.7 ./hg log -R /tmp/issue6445 -p --time \
--color=always --config diff.word-diff=true >/dev/null
(prev) time: real 1.580 secs (user 1.560+0.000 sys 0.020+0.000)
(this) time: real 1.610 secs (user 1.570+0.000 sys 0.030+0.000)

% HGRCPATH=/dev/null python3.9 ./hg log -R /tmp/issue6445 -p --time \
--color=always --config diff.word-diff=true >/dev/null
(prev) time: real 114.500 secs (user 114.460+0.000 sys 0.030+0.000)
(this) time: real 2.180 secs (user 2.140+0.000 sys 0.040+0.000)

Benchmark using random tabular text data (not the fast path):

% dd if=/dev/urandom bs=1k count=1000 | hexdump -v -e '16/1 "%3u," "\n"' > ttf
% hg ci -ma
% dd if=/dev/urandom bs=1k count=1000 | hexdump -v -e '16/1 "%3u," "\n"' > ttf
% hg ci -mb

% HGRCPATH=/dev/null python2.7 ./hg log -R /tmp/issue6445 -p --time \
--color=always --config diff.word-diff=true >/dev/null
(prev) time: real 3.240 secs (user 3.040+0.000 sys 0.200+0.000
(this) time: real 3.230 secs (user 3.070+0.000 sys 0.160+0.000)

% HGRCPATH=/dev/null python3.9 ./hg log -R /tmp/issue6445 -p --time \
--color=always --config diff.word-diff=true >/dev/null
(prev) time: real 44.130 secs (user 43.850+0.000 sys 0.270+0.000)
(this) time: real 4.170 secs (user 3.850+0.000 sys 0.310+0.000)
