discovery: fix embarrassing typo in slice definition

The code introduced in e514799e4e07 ended up having a silly bug. The indexing
selected a single item slice picking only p1. The discovery result was still
correct, but the sampling was hampered, sometime leading to much more round
trips being performed.

Fixing this issue restore the previous sampling behavior.

This fix has a negative performance impact on the pathological case the previous
test has been built.

Changeset e514799e4e07 raised the question of using the "_uncheckedparentrevs"
instead of the current code. So I ran comparative timing:

! wall 57.008843 comb 57.010000 user 56.330000 sys 0.680000 (median of 5)

So it looks like the overhead from `_uncheckedparentrevs` is not that impactful.
I'll investigate this shortly. I'm almost done updating our benchmark suite
with more meaningful discovery cases.
