bug#28343: 24.5; isearch highlighting slow - suppress for single space c

From: Ed Avis
Subject: bug#28343: 24.5; isearch highlighting slow - suppress for single space character
Date: Mon, 4 Sep 2017 10:53:21 +0100

Run Emacs in a fairly large terminal, say 200x200 characters.  Go to the
end of a buffer with some text in it (long enough to fill the screen)
and do C-r SPACE.  This is an isearch backwards for the space character.
If you have highlighting turned on, Emacs then starts highlighting
backwards all the space characters in the buffer.  But this can be slow,
a noticeable few seconds even on a fast machine.  (I think it depends on
the vagaries of memory management and possibly Lisp compiling, since
it's not always quite that bad; a second attempt takes only about half a
second.  But still it seems a long time.)

A small tweak to isearch would suppress the highlighting when what has
been typed so far is just a space character.  If the user types space
and then C-s or C-r again, to indicate that he or she really does want
to search for single spaces, then you can highlight at that point of
