[PATCH v2 1/1] pack-objects: ignore ambiguous object warnings

From: Derrick Stolee <dstolee@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>

A git push process runs several processes during its run, but one
includes git send-pack which calls git pack-objects and passes
the known have/wants into stdin using object ids. However, the
default setting for core.warnAmbiguousRefs requires git pack-objects
to check for ref names matching the ref_rev_parse_rules array in
refs.c. This means that every object is triggering at least six
"file exists?" queries.  When there are a lot of refs, this can
add up significantly! I observed a simple push spending three
seconds checking these paths.

The fix here is similar to 4c30d50 "rev-list: disable object/refname
ambiguity check with --stdin". Save the value of the global
warn_on_object_refname_ambiguity variable (which is usually set to
the boolean config variable core.warnAmbiguousRefs) and change the
state to false. Do this only during the get_object_list() method
which reads the objects from stdin.
