This repository is created with the filemode=false after I finish
cloning from the repository using cygwin.
I've decided to try cygexec on the fstab to see if it helps and it
does seem much faster.
I don't know if this is the correct way to speed it up again but the
speed slow down does seem related to reading each file and determining
if it is executable.
The new line is:
none /cygdrive cygdrive binary,posix=0,user,noacl,cygexec 0 0
