It bisects down to c5b761fb ("merge-recursive: ensure we write
updates for directory-renamed file", 2018-02-14); given that a part
of the symptom I saw was a few messages like these:

        ...
        CONFLICT (content): Merge conflict in upload-pack.c
        error: addinfo_cache failed for path 'sha1-name.c'
        error: addinfo_cache failed for path 'sha1-file.c'
        Auto-merging sequencer.c
        ...

and the patch does change code around the callsites to
add_cacheinfo(), it does look like a plausible culprit.
