Improve performance of persisting an index by magnitudesstable-2.0
When updating smudged entries use a pathfilter to iterate only over working tree files which have an associated smudged index entry. Commit dac66672df0535f61a13273524d46e1e0012ca69 introduced that we check and update smudged entries while persisting a dircache. Before that commit adding a file to git caused file i/o for the index file, the object database (to store new content) and all files we wanted to add (to read new content). After that commit we have additionally file i/o for every file in the working tree (even ignored files). Especially on windows iterating over the working tree can be very time consuming. This decreased the performance of persisting a dircache dramatically (I measured factors 4 to 10 while adding a file to linux kernel repo). One could easily see this effect when dragging&dropping modified files in a linux kernel repo in the egit staging view.
