In a preparatory step, let's return timestamp_t values from
commit_graph_generation(), use timestamp_t for local variables and
define GENERATION_NUMBER_INFINITY as (2 ^ 63 - 1) instead.

We rename GENERATION_NUMBER_MAX to GENERATION_NUMBER_V1_MAX to
represent the largest topological level we can store in the commit data
chunk.

With corrected commit dates implemented, we will have two such *_MAX
variables to denote the largest offset and largest topological level
that can be stored.

I think it would be easier to understand if it was explicitely said what
this preparatory step prepares for, e.g.:

  In a preparatory step for introducing corrected commit dates as
  generation number, let's return timestamp_t values from...

Or even

  generation number, let's change the return type of
  commit_graph_generation() to timestamp_t, and use ...

Otherwise it looks good.

All right, nice explanation.

Note that there are two changes that are not mentioned in the commit
message, namely adding 'const'-ness to generation_a/b local variables in
commit_gen_cmp() from commit-graph.c, and switching from
GENERATION_NUMBER_ZERO to GENERATION_NUMBER_INFINITY as the default
(initial) value for 'max_generation' in repo_in_merge_bases_many().

While the former is a simple "while-at-it" change that shouldn't affect
correctness, the latter needs an explanation (or fixing if it is wrong).

All right... but this also adds 'const' qualifier.  I understand that
you don't want to create separate commit for this "while at it"
change...

The change of type from uint32_t to timestamp_t is expected, but the
change from GENERATION_NUMBER_ZERO to GENERATION_NUMBER_INFINITY is not.

This might be caused by the fact that repo_in_merge_bases_many()
switched from using min_generation and GENERATION_NUMBER_INFINITY to
using max_generation and GENERATION_NUMBER_ZERO. Or the reverse: I see
one version on https://github.com/git/git, and other version in 'master'
pulled from https://github.com/git-for-windows/git

Certainly max_generation should be paired with GENERATION_NUMBER_ZERO,
and min_generation with GENERATION_NUMBER_INFINITY.

All right.

Sidenote: this parameter should probably be named gen_cutoff, for
consistency and better readability (but that was the existing state),
but this would also mean more changes.

Sidenote: this variable should probably be named gen_cutoff, for
consistency and better readability (but that was the existing state).
However changing it would pollute this commit with unrelated changes;
it is not that big of an isseu that it *requires* fixing.

All right.

The only thing to check is if you have changed the type in all the
places that need it. My cursory examination shows that those are all
places than need fixing.

Note that the 'generation' variable in git-name-rev, git-fsck and in
git-show-branch (snd sha1-name.c) means something different.

Also, 'first_generation' variable in generation_numbers_enabled() (part
of commit-graph.c) examines and will examine generation number v1 i.e.
topological levels, and do not need type change... though it may require
name change in some time in the future; the generation number
computation path also does not require change type, though variables
would be renamed in the future commit.

The change from GENERATION_NUMBER_ZERO to GENERATION_NUMBER_INFINITY was
incorrect. While fixing merge conflicts on rebasing to master again, I
didn't notice that repo_in_merge_bases_many() switched from using
min_generation and GENERATION_NUMBER_ZERO to max_generation and
GENERATION_NUMBER_ZERO.

Thanks for noticing!
