Commit Message

From: Ben Keene <seraphire@gmail.com>

NOTE: Python 3 is still not properly supported for any use with the
git-p4 python code.

Warning - this is a very large atomic commit.  The commit text is also
very large.

Change the code such that, with the exception of P4 depot paths and
depot files, all text read by git-p4 is cast as a string as soon as
possible and converted back to bytes as late as possible, following
Python 2 to Python 3 conversion best practices.

Important: Do not cast the bytes that contain the p4 depot path or p4
depot file name.  These should be left as bytes until used.

These two values should not be converted because the encoding of these
values is unknown.  git-p4 supports a configuration value
git-p4.pathEncoding that is used by the encodeWithUTF8() to determine
what a UTF8 version of the path and filename should be. However, since
depot path and depot filename need to be sent to P4 in their original
encoding, they will be left as byte streams until they are actually
used:

  * When sent to P4, the bytes are literally passed to the p4 command
  * When displayed in text for the user, they should be passed through
    the path_as_string() function
  * When used by GIT they should be passed through the encodeWithUTF8()
    function

Change all the rest of system calls to cast output from system calls
(stdin) as_bytes() and input (stdout) as_string().  This retains
existing Python 2 support, and adds python 3 support for these
functions:

 * read_pipe_full(c)
 * read_pipe_lines(c)
 * p4_has_move_command() - used internally
 * gitConfig(key, typeSpecifier=None)
 * branch_exists(branch)
 * GitLFS.generatePointer(cloneDestination, contentFile)
 * P4Submit.applyCommit(id) - template must be read and written to the
       temporary file as_bytes() since it is created in memory as a
       string.
 * P4Sync.streamOneP4File(file, contents) - wrap calls to the depotFile
       in path_as_string() for display. The file contents must be
       retained as bytes, so update the RCS changes to be forced to
       bytes.
 * P4Sync.streamP4Files(marshalled)
 * P4Sync.importHeadRevision(revision) - encode the depotPaths for
       display separate from the text for processing.

Py23File usage -

Change the P4Sync.OpenStreams() function to cast the gitOutput,
gitStream, and gitError streams as Py23File() wrapper classes.
This facilitates taking strings in both python 2 and python 3 and
casting them to bytes in the wrapper class instead of having to modify
each method. Since the fast-import command also expects a raw byte
stream for file content, add a new stream handle - gitStreamBytes which
is an unwrapped verison of gitStream.

Literal text -
Depending on context, most literal text does not need casting to unicode
or bytes as the text is Python dependent - In Python 2, the string is
implied as 'str' and python 3 the string is implied as 'unicode'. Under
these conditions, they match the rest of the operating text, following
best practices.  However, when a literal string is used in functions
that are dealing with the raw input from and raw ouput to files streams,
literal bytes may be required. Additionally, functions that are dealing
with P4 depot paths or P4 depot file names are also dealing with bytes
and will require the same casting as bytes.  The following functions
cast text as byte strings:

 * wildcard_decode(path) - the path parameter is a P4 depot and is
       bytes. Cast all the literals to bytes.
 * wildcard_encode(path) - the path parameter is a P4 depot and is
       bytes. Cast all the literals to bytes.
 * P4Sync.streamP4FilesCb(marshalled) - the marshalled data is in bytes.
       Cast the literals as bytes. When using this data to manipulate
       self.stream_file, encode all the marshalled data except for the
       'depotFile' name.
 * P4Sync.streamP4Files(marshalled)

Special behavior:

 * p4_describep4_describe(change, shelved=False) - encoding is disabled
       for the depotFile(x) and path elements since these are depot path
       and depo filenames.
 * p4PathStartsWith(path, prefix) - Since P4 depot paths can contain
       non-UTF-8 encoded strings, change this method to compare paths
       while supporting the optional encoding.

        - First, perform a byte-to-byte check to see if the path and
              prefix are both identical text.  There is no need to
              perform encoding conversions if the text is identical.
        - If the byte check fails, pass both the path and prefix through
              encodeWithUTF8() to ensure both paths are using the same
              encoding. Then perform the test as originally written.

 * P4Submit.patchRCSKeywords(file, pattern) - the parameters of file and
       pattern are both strings. However this function changes the
       contents of the file itentified by name "file". Treat the content
       of this file as binary to ensure that python does not accidently
       change the original encoding. The regular expression is cast
       as_bytes() and run against the file as_bytes(). The P4 keywords
       are ASCII strings and cannot span lines so iterating over each
       line of the file is acceptable.
 * P4Sync.writeToGitStream(gitMode, relPath, contents) - Since
       'contents' is already bytes data, instead of using the
       self.gitStream, use the new self.gitStreamBytes - the unwrapped
       gitStream that does not cast as_bytes() the binary data.
 * P4Sync.commit(details, files, branch, parent = "", allow_empty=False)
       Changed the encoding for the commit message to the preferred
       format for fast-import. The number of bytes is sent in the data
       block instead of using the EOT marker.

 * Change the code for handling the user cache to use binary files.
       Cast text as_bytes() when writing to the cache and as_string()
       when reading from the cache.  This makes the reading and writing
       of the cache determinstic in it's encoding. Unlike file paths,
       P4 encodes the user names in UTF-8 encoding so no additional
       string encoding is required.
