I found some more time to look into this.

It seems we have a buffer with raw data and we set up a `struct
object_id *` pointing into it, at a (supposed) OID value. Then
`update_tree_entry_internal()` verifies that the buffer contains
sufficiently many bytes, i.e., at least `the_hash_algo->rawsz` (=20).
We immediately call `oidset_insert()` which copies an entire struct,
i.e., we copy sizeof(struct object_id) (=32) bytes. Which is 12 more
than what is known to be safe. For this particular input data, we read
outside allocated memory.

I can think of three possible approaches:

* Allocate with a margin (GIT_MAX_RAWSZ - the_hash_algo->rawsz) where
  "necessary" (TM). Maybe not so maintainable.

* Teach `oidset_insert()` (i.e., khash) to only copy
  `the_hash_algo->rawsz` bytes. Maybe not so good for performance.

* Ignore.

I wonder which of these is the least awful, or if there are other ideas.
