Thanks for the update, that's more like what I expected.

Mine was on Debian unstable. The difference is probably that I have 400K
refs, but only 12K unique ones (this is the master alternates repo
containing every ref from every fork of rails/rails on GitHub). So I
spend proportionally more time fiddling with refs and outputting than
I do actually inflating tag objects.

Hmm. It seems like we should not need to open the tags at all. The main
reason is to produce the "peeled" advertisement just after it. But for a
packed ref with a modern version of git that supports the "peeled"
extension, we should already have that information.

The hack-ish patch below tries to reuse that. The interface is terrible,
and we should probably just pass the peel information via for_each_ref
(peel_ref tries to do a similar thing, but it also has a bad interface;
if we don't have the information already, it will redo the ref lookup.
We could probably get away with a peel_sha1 which uses the same
optimization trick as peel_ref).

With this patch my 800ms upload-pack drops to 600ms. I suspect it will
have an even greater impact for you, since you are spending much more of
your time on object loading than I am.

And note of course that while these micro-optimizations are neat, we're
still going to end up shipping quite a lot of data over the wire. Moving
to a protocol where we are advertising fewer refs would solve a lot more
problems in the long run.
