The final check we make while loading a multi-pack-index is that
the packfile names are in lexicographical order. Make this error
be a die() instead.
What is the advantage of having a die() here?
Would the midx work under normal operation when
not sorted correctly?

This sounds like a hack for easy testability in this context,
so could you clarify why this helps the regular user?

The multi-pack-index will not work as expected, since midx_contains_pack() may provide incorrect results, and thus we will add the "missing" packfiles to the packed_git linked list.

This _should_ be a die(), as something unexpected occurred (the file doesn't match the format specification).
