Ah, checking files_exists() and setting a bit seems sufficient.

Subject: [PATCH] server-info: do not list unlinked packs

Having non-existent packs in objects/info/packs causes
dumb HTTP clients to abort.

There remains a small window where the old objects/info/packs
file can refer to unlinked packs.  That's unavoidable even on a
local FS given the time-of-use-time-of-check window between
listing and retrieving files.

  I think the small window I refer to can be worked around by
  teaching the dumb HTTP client to reread objects/info/packs
  if it 404s while trying to GET a pack...
