I think this is the right direction, and overall it looks pretty good.
There's one call that gave me pause:

This function used to be idempotent, so any code which wanted to use the
global bitmap_git could call it "just in case". After your patch, it's
not. I think it's probably OK, since such functions would generally now
take a bitmap_git argument and use that (e.g., rebuild_existing_bitmaps
works that way after your patch).

We probably need to free(bitmap_git) before returning NULL here (this is
still in prepare_bitmap_git()).

Ditto here (and probably other error returns lower in the function, but
I didn't go through it carefully).
