Git allows users to create tags pointing to object hashes
that may or may not be commits. When a tag that doesn't
point to a commit is used with the -b (--branch) parameter
of git clone, git segfaults as it assumes that the tag will
always reference a commit.

Add a check to make sure that lookup_commit_reference returns a commit
before detaching HEAD.

    Fix potential segfault on cloning invalid tag
    
    The bug can be reproduced by running git tag 1.4.0 $(git rev-parse
    :filename) on the parent repository and then cloning the repo using git
    clone --branch 1.4.0 file://path/to/repo. The output should be something
    along the lines of:
    
    Cloning into '<path/to/repo>'...
    remote: Enumerating objects: 8, done.
    remote: Counting objects: 100% (8/8), done.
    remote: Compressing objects: 100% (5/5), done.
    remote: Total 8 (delta 1), reused 0 (delta 0), pack-reused 0
    Receiving objects: 100% (8/8), done.
    Resolving deltas: 100% (1/1), done.
    error: object d670460b4b4aece5915caf5c68d12f560a9fe3e4 is a blob, not a commit

This seemed eerily familiar, so I dug up these threads:

  - https://lore.kernel.org/git/20191029092735.GA84120@carpenter.lan/

  - https://lore.kernel.org/git/20191101002432.GA49846@carpenter.lan/

The interesting things are:

  - there are some other cases where we might see a non-commit, which
    are also worth covering

  - it would be friendlier to the user to put in a fallback value for
    HEAD. We already transferred the whole history, so deleting it is a
    bit less friendly than leaving it in a state the user can recover
    from locally

I think the patches there were moving in a good direction, but it looks
like they just got stalled.

From: Sohom Datta <sohom.datta@learner.manipal.edu>

The Git command to clone a specific branch of a git repository always
assumes that the commit pointed to by the branch are going to valid. It
thus segfaults and crashes whenever a tag or a branch with a invalid
commit is specified.

Aborting the operation is not desirable since the user is left with no
usable git folder to work with despite git having done most of the work
in setting everything up.

This commit is based of David Berardi's commit at
https://lore.kernel.org/git/20191103180716.GA72007@carpenter.lan/

Make git fallback on creating a unborn master branch when encountering
a invalid commit.

e.g. Subject: [PATCH v2] clone: do not put a non-commit on branch head

or something like that?

s/folder/repository/; not everything is Windows ;-)

Insert a comma after "work with" before "despite".

The above description is not wrong per-se, but the most expensive
part of discarding the result at this poihnt would be the copying of
contents from the other side, not just setting things up locally,
no?

Thanks.  Other than the nit pointed out above, the log message looks
readable.  Let's take a look at the code.

Style.  Remove SP around commit_lookup_helper on both sides.

foo_helper() is not particularly a meaningful name.  Let's read on
and see if we can come up with a better name.

This initialization is not strictly needed, no?  I'd rather see us
leave it uninitialized.

Excess SP before NULL.

OK, so tip points at the location that has the object name of the
object that is planned to be at the tip of the branch that is
checked out to the working tree.

Style. No SP after '(' before the condition.

Why double asterisk here, unlike the early return we saw earlier?
Let's lose the extra one.

The design to punt on a non-existing object at this point in the
callflow may be sound, but is !lookup_object() a reliable indication
that the object name refers to a non-existing object?

In other words, I do not see what guarantees that we have already
saw and parsed the named object and placed it in the hashtable
the_repository->parsed_objects->obj_hash[].

Is there a reason we should avoid using parse_object() here instead?

OK, the reasoning here is that we checked if tip refers to
non-existing object before we tried lookup_commit_reference_gently(),
so a failure to find a commit here must mean the object does exist
but is not a committish.  And in such a case, we decided to abort
the calling update_head() and create an unborn branch ourselves.

Perhaps makes sense, I need to think about it a bit more to be
certain, though.

> +		error(_("non-commit branch cannot be checked out."));
> +		create_symref("HEAD", "refs/heads/master" ,msg);

Style.  Wrong placement of a comma before 'msg'.

Post v2.29 codebase should ask what our default first branch name
should be.

> +		*err = -1;
> +		return NULL;

It is customary to use the returned value from error(), like so

		*status = error(_("..."));

that would save you one line.  Taking all the nits above together,
perhaps

	if (!tip_commit) {
		char *ref = xstrfmt("refs/heads/%s", git_default_branch_name());
		create_symref("HEAD", ref, msg);
		*err = error(_("..."));
		free(ref);
		return NULL;
	}

HOWEVER, I think it is much cleaner to lose the "we first check if
the object exists" part and directly see if tip points at a
committish first.  Only when the tip does not point at a committish,
we need to tell the two cases apart.  So after figuring out into
which ref the variable "tip" should point, we'd do something like:


	tip_commit = lookup_commit_refernece_gently(... tip, 1);
	if (tip_commit)
		return tip_commit;

	/*
	 * Now, "tip" is not a committish.  Does it even exist?
	 */
	if (!lookup_object(... tip))
		/* let update_ref() handle this error condition */
		return NULL;

	/*
	 * Give an error, but leave the default initial branch
	 * unborn, instead of failing the whole operation to cause
	 * the directory removed.
	 */
	... do the create_symref() thing ...
	return NULL;

Wouldn't it be cleaner?

> +	}
> +
> +	return tip_commit;
> +}
> +

If you did not do unnecessary rewrapping, the patch noise in the
function definition here would have been avoided, no?

>  			const char *msg)
>  {
>  	const char *head;
> +	int err = 0;
> +	const struct commit * c;

Style.  Lose SP between asterisk and c; in our codebase the asterisk
sticks to the identifier (not type).

Have a blank line here, between the end of decl and the first stmt
in the block.

> +	c = commit_lookup_helper(our, remote, msg, &err);
> +	if (err < 0) {
> +		return -1;
> +	}

Style. No {} around a single stmt.

More importantly, without a name that is more meaningful than
"commit_lookup_helper()" and without any comment near its definition
to describe what the function is supposed to compute and what it
considers an error, the reader of this callsite cannot tell what we
are calling the "helper" for, and under what condition we are told
by the helper to return an error to our callers.

With the analysis and rewrite of that _helper() function, I think a
more descriptive name for the helper should contain words like
"check/ensure" and "commit" in it.  And the "err" variables, both in
the caller and in the helper function, are somewhat misnamed.  It is
a signal from the callee to the caller that updating the branch head
has already been done by the callee, so the caller does not have to 
do anything further.  Perhaps


	int skip_update_ref = 0;
	const struct commit *c;

	c = check_tip_commit(our, remote, msg, &skip_update_ref);
	if (skip_update_ref)
		return -1; /* left a fallback unborn branch */

	... and then "c" is a commit (already peeled) usable for
	... pointing HEAD to at this point.

I'd suggest giving the "c" variable, whose lifespan is now much
longer than in the original code, a more meaningful name, though.

Can't this cause discrepancy when the helper picked remote->old_oid
as the "tip" there?  We called lookup_commit_reference_gently() on
that oid, and decided to check out the resulting commit and point
HEAD at it, so we are certain that your "c" is a commit object, but
remote->old_oid may name an annotated tag that points at the commit
object.  Don't we want to use &c->object.old here as well?

If that is the case (you need to think about it yourself---I didn't
spend more than 5 minutes on this particular point myself and the
above might be total nonsense), this part would become

	if (our && our is in our local branch namespace) {
		... do the local thing ...
	} else if (our || remote) {
		update_ref(msg, "HEAD", &c->object.oid, NULL, ...);
	}

as the body for 'our' and 'remote' are the same.

The logic looks OK.  We avoid checking out an unborn if we left HEAD
unborn because there is no better choice.  And by not calling
checkout() and overwriting the err variable, we make sure that the
entire command still reports a failure.

I am not absolutely sure if reusing 'err' like the above two hunks
is the best thing to do, or the code becomes easier to follow if we
introduced another variable to receive the returned value from
update_head().  Perhaps what we have above is good enough.  I dunno.

Style.  Do not leave SP between redirection operator and its target,
i.e.

	echo $blob >.git/refs/heads/...

Didn't you mean to use refs/tags/broken-tag for the first one, though?
Otherwise, I do not see how anybody would expect the two tests check
different things.

Thanks.
