[PATCH v1 0/8] Introducing odb remote

This is a follow up from the patch series called "Promisor remotes and
external ODB support" that I sent earlier this year.

Following discussions of these patch series, where Junio said "a
minimum s/ext/remote/ would clarify what it is", I decided to rename
"external odb" to "odb remote". I am still open to another name, but I
think that "odb remote" works well with "odb helper" that was already
used in the series and is as good or perhaps better than "remote odb",
as a "remote odb" I think would be easier to confuse with a regular

Another obvious difference with the previous series is that this
series is only about integrating with the promisor/narrow clone work
and showing that it makes it possible to use more than one promisor
remote. Everything that is not necessary for that integration has been
removed for now (though you can still find it in one of my branches on
GitHub if you want).

This makes this patch series much shorter than the previous ones and
already useful. So hopefully this will make it possible to start
reviewing and merging it.

There is one test in patch 8/8 that shows that more than one promisor
remote can now be used, but I feel that it could be interesting to add
other such tests, so I am open to ideas in this area.

High level overview of this patch series

  - Patch 1/8:

This makes functions in fetch-object.c return an error code, which is
necessary to later tell that they failed and try another odb remote
when there is more than one. This could also just be seen as a fix to
these functions.

  - Patch 2/8:

This introduces the minimum infrastructure for odb remotes.

  - Patches 3/8 and 4/8:

These patches implement odb_remote_get_direct() and
odb_remote_get_many_direct() using the functions from fetch-object.c.
These new functions will be used in following patches to replace the
functions from fetch-object.c.

  - Patch 5/8:

This implement odb_remote_reinit() which will be needed to reparse the
odb remote configuration.

  - Patches 6/8 and 7/8:

These patches integrate the odb remote mechanism into the
promisor/narrow clone code. The "extensions.partialclone" config
option is replaced by "odb.<name>.promisorRemote" and
"core.partialclonefilter" is replaced by "odb.<name>.partialclonefilter".

  - Patch 8/8:

This adds a test case that shows that now more than one promisor
remote can be used.
