context: introduce an `isintroducedafter` method and use it in copies

Right now, copy tracing make effort to not traverse the graph too much to save
performance. It uses a "limit" acting as a floor revision past which data are no
longer relevant to the current copy tracing.

However, to enforce this limit, it uses a call to `filectx.rev()`, that call can
trigger a graph traversal on its own. That extra graph traversal is oblivious of
the current limit and can become very expensive. That cost is increased by the
nature of work done in adjust link rev, we are not only walking down the graph,
we are also checking the affected file for each revision we walk through.
Something significantly more expensive than the walk itself.

To work around this we need to make the `filectx` operation aware of the current
limit. The first step is to introduce a dedicated method: `isintroducedafter`.
We'll then rework that method logic to stop traversal as soon as possible.
