In commit 8b09a900a1 ("merge-ort: restart merge with cached renames to
reduce process entry cost", 2021-07-16), we noted that in the merge-ort
steps of
    collect_merge_info()
    detect_and_process_renames()
    process_entries()
that process_entries() was expensive, and we could often make it cheaper
by changing this to
    collect_merge_info()
    detect_and_process_renames()
    <cache all the renames, and restart>
    collect_merge_info()
    detect_and_process_renames()
    process_entries()
because the second collect_merge_info() would be cheaper (we could avoid
traversing into some directories), the second
detect_and_process_renames() would be free since we had already detected
all renames, and then process_entries() has far fewer entries to handle.

However, this was built on the assumption that the first
detect_and_process_renames() actually detected all potential renames.
If someone has merge.renameLimit set to some small value, that
assumption is violated which manifests later with the following message:

    $ git -c merge.renameLimit=1 rebase upstream
    ...
    git: merge-ort.c:546: clear_or_reinit_internal_opts: Assertion
    `renames->cached_pairs_valid_side == 0' failed.

Turn off this cache-renames-and-restart whenever we cannot detect all
renames, and add a testcase that would have caught this problem.

+# The following testcase just creates two simple renames (slightly modified
+# on both sides but without conflicting changes), and a directory full of
+# files that are otherwise uninteresting.  The setup is as follows:
+#
+#   base:     unrelated/<BUNCH OF FILES>
+#             numbers
+#             values
+#   upstream: modify: numbers

+#   topic:    add: unrelated/foo
+#             modify: numbers
+#             modify: values
+#             rename: numbers -> sequence
+#             rename: values -> progression
+#
+# This is a trivial rename case, but we're curious what happens with a very
+# low renameLimit interacting with the restart optimization trying to notice
+# that unrelated/ looks like a trivial merge candidate.
