Series Sparse Index: Integrate with 'git add' | expand

Disable command_requires_full_index for 'git add'. This does not require
any additional removals of ensure_full_index(). The main reason is that
'git add' discovers changes based on the pathspec and the worktree
itself. These are then inserted into the index directly, and calls to
index_name_pos() or index_file_exists() already call expand_to_path() at
the appropriate time to support a sparse-index.

Add a test to check that 'git add -A' and 'git add <file>' does not
expand the index at all, as long as <file> is not within a sparse
directory. This does not help the global 'git add .' case.

We can measure the improvement using p2000-sparse-operations.sh with
these results:

Test                                  HEAD~1           HEAD
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
2000.6: git add -A (full-index-v3)    0.35(0.30+0.05)  0.37(0.29+0.06) +5.7%
2000.7: git add -A (full-index-v4)    0.31(0.26+0.06)  0.33(0.27+0.06) +6.5%
2000.8: git add -A (sparse-index-v3)  0.57(0.53+0.07)  0.05(0.04+0.08) -91.2%
2000.9: git add -A (sparse-index-v4)  0.58(0.55+0.06)  0.05(0.05+0.06) -91.4%

While the 91% improvement seems impressive, it's important to recognize
that previously we had significant overhead for expanding the
sparse-index. Comparing to the full index case, 'git add -A' goes from
0.37s to 0.05s, which is "only" an 86% improvement.

This modification to 'git add' creates some behavior change depending on
the use of a sparse index. We modify a test in t1092 to demonstrate
these changes which will be remedied in future changes.
