      Description

      In SOLR-7927, I am trying to reduce the memory required to index very large documents (between 10 to 100MB) and one of the places which allocate a lot of heap is the UTF8 encoding in CompressingStoredFieldsWriter. The same problem existed in JavaBinCodec and we reduced its memory allocation by falling back to a double pass approach in SOLR-7971 when the utf8 size of the string is greater than 64KB.

      I propose to make the same changes to CompressingStoredFieldsWriter as we made to JavaBinCodec in SOLR-7971.
