linkrev: introduce a 'introrev' method on filectx

The previous changeset properly fixed the ancestors computation, but we need to
ensure that the initial filectx is also using the right changeset.

When asking for log or annotation from a certain point, the first step is to
define the changeset that introduced the current file version. We cannot just
pick the "starting point" changesets" as it may just "use" the file revision,

For now, We were using 'linkrev' for this purpose, but this expose use to
unexpected branch jumping when the revision introducting the starting point
version is itself linkrev-shadowed.  So we need to take the topology into
account again. Therefore, we introduce a 'introrev' function, returning the
changeset who introduced the filechange in the current changesets.

This function will be used to fix linkrev related issue when bootstrapping 'hg
log --follow' and 'hg annotate'.

It reuses the '_adjustlinkrev' function, extending it to allow introspection of
the initial changeset too. In the previous usage of the '_adjustlinkrev' the
starting rev was always using a children file revisions, so it could be safely
ignored in the search. In this case, the starting point is using the revision
of the file we are looking, and may be the changeset we are looking for.
