[PATCH v2 2/8] fetch-pack: clear marks before re-marking

If tag following is required when using a transport that does not
support tag following, fetch_pack() will be invoked twice in the same
process, necessitating a clearing of the object flags used by
fetch_pack() sometime during the second invocation. This is currently
done in find_common(), which means that the invocation of
mark_complete_and_common_ref() in do_fetch_pack() is useless.

(This cannot be reproduced with Git alone, because all transports that
come with Git support tag following.)

Therefore, move this clearing from find_common() to its
parent function do_fetch_pack(), right before it calls

This has been occurring since the commit that introduced the clearing of
marks, 420e9af498 ("Fix tag following", 2008-03-19).

The corresponding code for protocol v2 in do_fetch_pack_v2() does not
have this problem, as the clearing of flags is done before any marking
(whether by rev_list_insert_ref_oid() or
