That part of the sentence is good.  But the next four lines are not.

As long as all the users of unpack_trees() want to work with the
primary in-core index instance, that is not a problem.  There is no
need to lament with a phrase like "unfortunately".  If you are not
touching unpack_trees(), but you needed to adjust its use of
cache_tree_update(), then none of the above needs to be said.  If
you change one API function (i.e. cache_tree_update()), all callers
need to be adjusted for that change, but if one caller only wants to
work in the primary repository and with its primary index, that is
fine.  You change it so that it passes the repository and the index
it wants the updated unpack_trees() to work on, and there is nothing
notable in it.

The flow of explanation of the thought in this paragraph is probably
backwards for most people to understand what you wanted to say.

    The cache_tree_update() was originally designed to take an istate so
    that it can work on an instance of in-core index that is not the
    primary one for the repository, and we want to keep that property
    while teaching the subsystem how to deal with a repository other
    than the_repository.  Hence it can take a pointer to the repository
    and a pointer to istate separately.

Nothing else needs to be said.  The update-main-cache-tree is a thin
wrapper to work on cache tree for THE MAIN in-core index instance,
so it is natural if it needs to pass r and r->index, exactly because
the latter is THE MAIN in-core index instance for the repository.
That is too obvious that it is best left unsaid, for the same reason
why you shouldn't even mention what you did in updating the use of
update_cache_tree() inside unpack_trees().  There is nothing notable
in there.

What branch did you base this patch on?  There is no update_cache_tree()
call in sparse-index.c on 'master' (well, there is no sparse-index.c
in 'master' to begin with).  

While it is not prohibited to build on a commit that is not on
'master', you'd need to keep your dependencies to the minimum so
that the topic won't be taken hostage by other topics that do not
move quickly enough to your liking.  Building on 'next' or 'seen'
as a whole is a guarantee that the topic will never hit 'master',
as no tip of 'next' will ever be merged directly to 'master'.

And if you are building somewhere other than the tip of 'master', it
is necessary to say where, in order to save confusion and wasted
effort for your readers.  E.g.  "This patch was made on top of
merging topic 'X' and 'Y' into 'master'".  Then you'd only have to
wait for 'X' and 'Y' to graduate to 'master' before the topic can
proceed.

Thanks.
