[PATCH 2/2] Fix callsites of real_pathdup() that wanted it to die on error




In 4ac9006f832 (real_path: have callers use real_pathdup and
strbuf_realpath, 2016-12-12), we changed the xstrdup(real_path())
pattern to use real_pathdup() directly.

The only problem with this change is that real_path() calls
strbuf_realpath() with die_on_error = 1 while real_pathdup() calls it
with die_on_error = 0. Meaning that in cases where real_path() causes
Git to die() with an error message, real_pathdup() is silent and returns
NULL instead.

The callers, however, are ill-prepared for that change, as they expect
the return value to be non-NULL.

This patch fixes that by extending real_pathdup()'s signature to accept
the die_on_error flag and simply pass it through to strbuf_realpath(),
and then adjust all callers after a careful audit whether they would
handle NULLs well.

Note: this fix not only prevents NULL pointer accesses, but it also
reintroduces the error messages that were lost with the change to
real_pathdup().
