Not much rationale here. I guess because it is all in the 3rd patch,
which ties it into receive-pack. I'm not sure it's worth repeating. I
guess it could all be squished back into one patch. I'm OK either way.

Looks good. I see you marked it for translation, which makes sense.

On the original, I waffled on whether to share the size with the user in
the message. I didn't want to encourage people with "oh, if it's under
2G it must be OK, then!". Because really 2G was meant to be a "you
really shouldn't get this high, and we will unceremoniously dump your
push if you do".

max_input_size is an off_t, but your parse only up to ULONG_MAX here.
For my purposes in the original patch, this was OK, as we set it at 2GB,
which works everywhere (and also, GitHub systems all have 64-bit "long"
these days). But somebody on a 32-bit system could not set this to 4GB,
even though I think index-pack could otherwise handle it. We seem to use
strtoumax() elsewhere, so that's probably a good match (technically it
can overflow an off_t, but in practice this value comes from the admin
and they will set something sane).
