Optimize SegmentMerger to work on atomic (Segment)Readers where possible
------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: LUCENE-2770
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENE-2770
             Project: Lucene - Java
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Index
            Reporter: Uwe Schindler
            Assignee: Uwe Schindler
            Priority: Minor
             Fix For: 3.1, 4.0
         Attachments: LUCENE-2770.patch

This is a spin-off from LUCENE-2769:

Currently SegmentReader has some optimizations when it merges segments that are itsself SegmentReaders
(e.g. when doing normal indexing or optimizing). But when you do IndexWriter.addIndexes(IndexReader...)
the listed IndexReaders may not really be per-segment. SegmentMerger should track down all
passed in reads down to the lowest level (Segment)Reader (or other atomic readers like SlowMultiReaderWrapper)
and then merge. We can then remove most MultiFields usage (except term merging itsself) and
clean up the code.

This especially saves lots of memory for merging norms, as no longer the duplicate norms arrays
are created when MultiReaders are used!
