I wasn't able to come up with a simple case that actually demonstrates
the bug. But I feel like it has to be triggerable with the right
sequence of history.

Even without that, though, I feel like moving away from this flag usage
is a good cleanup. Here's a cleaned-up series. What do you think of
building your patch on top?

We can do it the other way around if you prefer.

  [1/4]: ref-filter: move ref_cbdata definition into ref-filter.c
  [2/4]: ref-filter: use contains_result enum consistently
  [3/4]: ref-filter: die on parse_commit errors
  [4/4]: ref-filter: use separate cache for contains_tag_algo
