Run "update-cache --refresh" _before_ doing the "checkout-cache", and that
is exactly what will happen.
But yes, if you want to make checkout-cache update the stat info (Ingo
wanted to do that too), it should be possible. The end result is a
combination of "update-cache" and "checkout-cache", though: you'll
effectively need to both (just in one pass).
With the current setup, you have to do
checkout-cache -f -a
which is admittedly fairly inefficient.
The real expense right now of a merge is that we always forget all the
stat information when we do a merge (since it does a read-tree). I have a
cunning way to fix that, though, which is to make "read-tree -m" read in
the old index state like it used to, and then at the end just throw it
away except for the stat information.
