Our generation of HTML triggers many small write(2) syscalls
which is inefficient.

Time output on a horrible query against my git.git mirror
shows significant performance improvement:

QUERY_STRING='id=2b93bfac0f5bcabbf60f174f4e7bfa9e318e64d5&id2=d6da71a9d16b8cf27f9d8f90692d3625c849cbc8'
PATH_INFO=/mirrors/git.git/diff
export QUERY_STRING PATH_INFO
time ./cgit >/dev/null

Before:
real    0m1.585s
user    0m0.904s
sys     0m0.658s

After:
real    0m0.750s
user    0m0.666s
sys     0m0.076s

 I've been running this with Lua commit filter for the past two
 years without known problems.  I don't use the cgit cache,
 though, so extra eyes on that would be appreciated.
