Subject: [PATCH v2 1/2] pack-bitmap: clean up include_check after use
Date: Wed, 28 Apr 2021 11:42:30 -0400	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <YImCZpLA0TjAkU9/> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <>

When a bitmap walk has to traverse (to fill in non-bitmapped objects),
we use rev_info's include_check mechanism to let us stop the traversal
early. But after setting the function and its data parameter, we never
clean it up. This means that if the rev_info is used for a subsequent
traversal without bitmaps, it will unexpectedly call into our
include_check function (worse, it will do so pointing to a now-defunct
stack variable in include_check_data, likely resulting in a segfault).

There's no code which does this now, but it's an accident waiting to
happen. Let's clean up after ourselves in the bitmap code.
