It only completes hashes from 'git log -20 --pretty=%h', which should do
O(1) work regardless of repo size.

FWIW, on my datasets the completion of "--fix<TAB>" to "--fixup=" takes
longer than generating and displaying the completion suggestions upon
hitting <TAB> after the equal sign.  Even with cold caches on a 250MB
repo it takes just a few seconds.
