I think it is entirely an orthogonal matter.  When we learn that the
other side now has this ref as a symref pointing to this other ref,
an update of the local ref on the RHS of the refspec that has such a
symref on its LHS will not be using the current codepath to call
update_ref() to write the object name thru an existing symref.
