You can't reliably just grab the broken objects, because most transports
don't support grabbing arbitrary objects (you can do it if you have
shell access to a known-good repository, but it's not automated).
The simplest thing is usually to re-clone the known-good remotes, then
copy the resulting packfiles into your original repository. You'll have
duplicated objects until your next "gc", but the resulting repack should
skip any corrupted objects and use the known-good ones.
