[PATCH v1 0/2] fix temporary garbage in the cache entry

From: Lars Schneider <larsxschneider@xxxxxxxxx>


in [1] Peff noticed that the delayed filter mechanism causes garbage
in the cache entry for a brief moment during a delayed checkout process.

The first patch fixes this issue. The second patch ensures that we don't
write garbage in that way to the cache entry caused by any other unknown
or external reason ever again.

Please review carefully in case I overlooked some unintended side

Thank you,
