Ah, I forgot about this detail.  I don't think it should block this
patch (so my Reviewed-by still stands), but I wonder why this needs to
be gentle.  add_submodule_odb is gentle so that is the conservative
thing to do, but that doesn't mean it is the *right* thing to do.

If this passed NULL instead of &code as the second argument, would
anything break?

Could there be a comment explaining what kind of error we are
expecting and why it is okay to continue when that error is
encountered without any error handling?

Thanks,
Jonathan
