[PATCH v2 0/1] Properly peel tags in can_all_from_reach_with_flags()




As Peff reported [1], the refactored can_all_from_reach_with_flags() method
does not properly peel tags. Since the helper method can_all_from_reach()
and code in t/helper/test-reach.c all peel tags before getting to this
method, it is not super-simple to create a test that demonstrates this.

I modified t/helper/test-reach.c to allow calling
can_all_from_reach_with_flags() directly, and added a test in
t6600-test-reach.sh that demonstrates the segfault without the fix.

For V2, I compared the loop that inspects the 'from' commits in commit
ba3ca1edce "commit-reach: move can_all_from_reach_with_flags" to the version
here and got the following diff:

3c3
<                 if (from_one->flags & assign_flag)
---
>                 if (!from_one || from_one->flags & assign_flag)
5c5,7
<                 from_one = deref_tag(the_repository, from_one, "a from object", 0);

>                                      "a from object", 0);

>                 list[nr_commits] = (struct commit *)from_one;
>                 if (parse_commit(list[nr_commits]) ||
>                     list[nr_commits]->generation < min_generation)
>                         return 0; /* is this a leak? */
>                 nr_commits++;

This diff includes the early termination we had before 'deref_tag' and the
comment for why we can ignore non-commit objects.
