  * xdisp.c (try_scrolling): Compute the limit for searching point
  in forward scroll from scroll_max, instead of an arbitrary limit
  of 10 screen lines.  See
  http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/emacs-devel/2010-06/msg00766.html
  and
  http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/emacs-devel/2010-06/msg00773.html
  for details.

This change (on trunk) causes a big slowdown in navigating large
buffers.  To reproduce, make a .emacs with just the following line:

(setq scroll-conservatively 1000)

Then:

emacs /path/to/xdisp.c
M-g M-g 20000 RET

Emacs takes about a second to move point to the specified line.  If the
above change is reverted, moving is instantaneous.  The slowdown is much
more apparent if Emacs is compiled without optimizations.
