Add more progress output to the output already added in
7b0f229222 ("commit-graph write: add progress output", 2018-09-17).

As noted in that commit most of the progress output isn't displayed on
small repositories, but before this change we'd noticeably hang for
2-3 seconds at the end on medium sized repositories such as linux.git.

Now we'll instead show output like this, and have no human-observable
point at which we're not producing progress output:

    $ ~/g/git/git --exec-path=$HOME/g/git commit-graph write
    Finding commits for commit graph: 6365492, done.
    Computing commit graph generation numbers: 100% (797222/797222), done.
    Writing out commit graph: 2399912, done.

This "writing out" number is not meant to be meaningful to the user,
but just to show that we're doing work and the command isn't
hanging.

In the current implementation it's approximately 4x the number of
commits. As noted in on-list discussion[1] we could add the loops up
and show percentage progress here, but I don't think it's worth it. It
would make the implementation more complex and harder to maintain for
very little gain.

On a much larger in-house repository I have we'll show (note how we
also say "Annotating[...]"):

    $ ~/g/git/git --exec-path=$HOME/g/git commit-graph write
    Finding commits for commit graph: 50026015, done.
    Annotating commit graph: 21567407, done.
    Computing commit graph generation numbers: 100% (7144680/7144680), done.
    Writing out commit graph: 21434417, done.

"approximately" only, because the current implementation is buggy :)
If done right it's exactly 4x the number of commits.

I think that if we can cheaply and accurately figure out the total,
then we should display it, so onlooking users can guesstimate how much
work is still left to be done.

I think this display_progress() should be places after the condition,
so no one has to waste brain cycles on figuring out, why it always
counts 255 more than the number of commits.

... counts the parents of the current commit ...

... and continues iterating unless it's an octopus merge.

So this display_progress() call is in the wrong place, because it will
only be invoked on octopus merges, which only rarely occur in
practice, thus it's entirely possible that it won't show any progress
at all while the outer while loop iterates over the whole history.

This display_progress() should be places somewhere before that 'if
(num_parents <= 2)' condition.  And then this one, too, will count the
number of commits.
