merge-file: enforce MAX_XDIFF_SIZE on incoming files
The previous commit enforces MAX_XDIFF_SIZE at the
interfaces to xdiff: xdi_diff (which calls xdl_diff) and
ll_xdl_merge (which calls xdl_merge).
But we have another direct call to xdl_merge in
merge-file.c. If it were written today, this probably would
just use the ll_merge machinery. But it predates that code,
and uses slightly different options to xdl_merge (e.g.,
We could try to abstract out an xdi_merge to match the
existing xdi_diff, but even that is difficult. Rather than
simply report error, we try to treat large files as binary,
and that distinction would happen outside of xdi_merge.
The simplest fix is to just replicate the MAX_XDIFF_SIZE
check in merge-file.c.
