With the default settings and no cached visibility for the repo, the
hunks should not be expanded, so Magit isn't actually coloring/painting
them yet.  In this case, the processing of these diffs will be slow
regardless of whether they are painted and the CLI "git checkout"
suggestion is good, but I think the delayed painting is worth noting
because users may not realize that their custom visibility settings are
making things slower.
