I don't see anywhere there that you would be willing to accept a patch
that makes a compromise. Did I miss that part?

Actually I saw that mail by looking at the archives, but I didn't
notice the patch. I have tried the patch, it's still *dead slow* for
me. Again, I don't think this can be solved without writing new git
plumbing. You need to avoid 'git ls-files'.

So. At which point are you going to be willing to accept the fact that
it's not possible to fix the performance without making a compromise?
One week? One month? This issue seems to have been going on for
