There are some patches in ds/commit-graph-fsck that would be helpful for 
this effort, and may be easier for you to take.

Specifically, these ones:

  - commit-graph: load a root tree from specific graph
  - commit: force commit to parse from object database
  - commit-graph: parse commit from chosen graph

I'm waiting for sb/object-store-lookup to be in 'next' before I re-roll 
that branch. If you're not in a rush to send this series, perhaps wait 
for the next version here.

I'm playing around with a series that groups most commit walks into one 
file, so they can share more code and we can more easily test their 
correctness and performance. I'll send an RFC sometime that will 
absolutely collide with this one, but I expect a full v1 patch will be 
based on this series.
