OK.  Between trace_printf_key() and the return of the call to
read_raw_ref() method of the ref backend is only an "if (res == 0)"
condition and I do not see anything that might clobber errno.

I do wonder if we want strerror(errno) instead of the number, but I
can go either way (it's just a trace output).

Thanks, will queue.

I don't want to bet on that. Let me send a second round.

For tracing, it would be most useful if we got the actual symbol (eg.
ENOENT). Is there a way to get at that?

oh, ugh.  In email, there are two calls, but one is prefixed with '-'.

Nevertheless, a bit of paranoia doesn't hurt here.

I do not think there is.

And that is the reason why we see everywhere calls to die_errno(),
error(..., strerror(errno)), etc.

As this is interpolated into trace with untranslated string,
I suspect that strerror() is not a good match, so let's live with %d
for now.

Thanks.

Great!

This topic is marked as

Waiting for reviews to conclude.
cf. <xmqq4kgbb2ic.fsf@gitster.g>

but I don't know what is left to do. Oversight?
