* Bug: performance issue in org-font-lock-add-priority-faces related to org-priority-regexp [9.4 (9.4-7-g3eccc5-elpaplus @ /home/standard/.emacs.d/elpa/26.3/develop/org-plus-contrib-20200921/)]

After updating from org-plus-contrib-20200810 to 
org-plus-contrib-20200921, opening org files has become extremely slow 
for me. As a rough estimate, a 400 KB org file of mine used to take 5 
seconds on first load in a session, and after the update needed more 
than 2 minutes. This is the case both in Emacs 27.1 in Windows, and 
Emacs 26.3 in Windows WSL1 Ubuntu 20.04 LTS, using spacemacs develop.

I can narrow it down to this change:

org-font-lock-add-priority-faces used to search for this regexp: "^\\*+ 
Now it searches for org-priority-regexp, which by default resolves to 
".*?\\(\\[#\\([A-Z0-9]+\\)\\] ?\\)".

This is much slower, and also matches more than I expected. In the 
following example, I expect only [#A], but it will match [#B] and [#C] 
too. Is this intended?

** TODO [#A] Headline [#B]
this is matched despite not being a heading: [#C] more text

It seems plausible that the slowdown comes from the regex engine now 
doing elaborate matching on all lines, instead of fast skipping over 
non-heading lines.

This version seems to resolve my problem, where the beginning "^\\*+ " 
should narrow matches to heading lines only:
(setq org-priority-regexp "^\\*+ .*?\\(\\[#\\([A-Z0-9]+\\)\\] ?\\)")

Profiler excerpt (the other 51% were mostly eaten by spell checking 
during idling, as I got distracted waiting for the loading to finish):

Apologies, the extreme slowdown for the regex in my setup is mostly 
credited to a very long line in my org file (~100k characters). I 
inserted a snippet from a log file to a quote block, without realizing 
that a large base64 string was hiding at the end of one line.
The old regex could exclude that line early on, because it wasn't a 
header line, so I didn't notice a performance hit back then.

With that line deleted (org file shrinks to ~300KB), I measured 
performance with the new and old regex (new on 1st line vs old on 2nd line):

(elp-instrument-function 'org-font-lock-add-priority-faces)
;; open org file

      Function Name                     Call Count  Elapsed Time Average 
new: org-font-lock-add-priority-faces  28          0.0228787000 0.0008170964
old: org-font-lock-add-priority-faces  28          0.0007937999 2.834...e-05

So the new one is still considerably slower, but probably not noticeable 
unless the file is really large and/or it contains long lines.

One last remark, my workaround from the last mail is flawed, e.g. it 
broke priority sorting in my agendas. This one worked better:

(defun adv--org-font-lock-add-priority-faces (wrapped-func &rest args)
   (let ((org-priority-regexp "^\\*+ .*?\\(\\[#\\([A-Z0-9]+\\)\\] ?\\)"))
     (apply wrapped-func args)))
(advice-add 'org-font-lock-add-priority-faces :around
