[RFC PATCH 0/3] Make fsck check other worktree HEADs

This patchset adds checking of other worktree HEADs to fsck.

The reason I've marked this RFC is that I'm worried my incidental
reliance on "worktrees/$WORKTREE/HEAD" resolving as a ref (in patch 3)
might raise some flags for others.  In particular, in [1] Peff said
that this refname resolves right now mostly by accident and will
probably stop working in the future.  However, I feel that since fsck
checks the storage format as well as contents, it seems natural that a
change of storage model would result in the fsck code changing and
thus that I'm not locking in any particular ref format long term with
these changes.  But I want to flag this issue for discussion.
