I'm not sure where valgrind.out comes from. The individual
test-results/*.out files may have valgrind output, but I don't think
they usually contain leak output.

Doing "valgrind ./git-upload-pack . </dev/null >/dev/null" mentions
leaked memory but not the locations. Adding --leak-check=full shows that
most of it comes from format_packet().

And applying Martin's patch drops the "definitely lost" category down to
0 bytes (there's still 550k in "still reachable", but those are in the
"exit will free them for us" category).

I'm curious, too. I don't think the valgrind setup in our test suite is
great for finding leaks right now.
