Git: You May Want to Set Your merge.renameLimit

I ran into this error today will trying to merge a large refactor.

warning: inexact rename detection was skipped due to too many files.
warning: you may want to set your merge.renameLimit variable to at least 1264 and retry the command

Here is how you set and unset that rename limit

git config merge.renameLimit 999999

git config --unset merge.renameLimit
