[PATCH v2 0/3] Clean up leaks in commit-graph.c




While looking at the commit-graph code, I noticed some memory leaks. These
can be found by running

valgrind --leak-check=full ./git commit-graph write --reachable

The impact of these leaks are small, as we never call write_commit_graph
_reachable in a loop, but it is best to be diligent here.

While looking at memory consumption within write_commit_graph(), I noticed
that we initialize our oid list with "object count / 4", which seems to be a
huge over-count. I reduce this by a factor of eight.

I built off of ab/commit-graph-progress, because my patch involves lines
close to those changes.

V2 includes feedback from V1 along with Martin's additional patches.

Thanks, -Stolee

          leaked in write_commit_graph_reachable(). Clean these up so our
          memory checking is cleaner.
      
     -    Running 'valgrind --leak-check=full git commit-graph write
     -    --reachable' demonstrates these leaks and how they are fixed after
     -    this change.
     +    Further, if we use a list of pack-files to find the commits, we
     +    can leak the packed_git structs after scanning them for commits.
      
     +    Running the following commands demonstrates the leak before and
