This series focuses on allowing parallel access to zlib inflation and
using that to perform a faster git-grep in the non-worktree case.

Threads were disabled for this case at 53b8d93 ("grep: disable
threading in non-worktree case", 12-12-2011), due to performance drops.

However, by allowing threads to perform inflation in parallel, we can
regain the speedup. This is a good hotspot for parallelism as some test
cases[1] showed that it can account for up to 48% of execution time.
And besides that, inflation tasks are already independent of each other.

As a result, grepping 'abcd[02]' ("Regex 1") and
'(static|extern) (int|double) \*' ("Regex 2") at chromium's
repository[2], I got (means of 30 executions):

     Threads |   Regex 1  |  Regex 2
    ---------|------------|-----------
        1    |  17.3557s  | 20.8410s
        2    |   9.7170s  | 11.2415s
        8    |   6.1723s  |  6.9378s

As a reference, just enabling threads in the non-worktree case,
without parallel inflation, I got:

     Threads |   Regex 1  |  Regex 2
    ---------|------------|-----------
        1    |  17.1359s  | 20.8306s
        2    |  14.5036s  | 15.4172s
        8    |  13.6304s  | 13.8659s

For now, the optimization is not supported when --textconv or
--recurse-submodules are used, but I hope to send another patchset for
that still during GSoC. We may also try to allow even more parallelism,
refining the added 'obj_read_lock'.
