[PATCH 0/2] --no-deref and --stdin compatibility for update-ref

Currently, the --no-deref and --stdin options of update-ref cannot be
used together (the code aborts immediately with a usage message), though
it makes sense to do so and is easier than repeatedly specifying on
stdin that each ref should not be dereferenced.  Also, the documentation
for the --no-deref option has a few problems, making it unclear what it
is and isn't compatible with.

The first patch is just a minor code fixup that the second lightly
depends on.  The second patch has the changes to fix the issues stated

Elijah Newren (2):
  update-ref: fix type of update_flags variable to match its usage
  update-ref: allow --no-deref with --stdin
