I can certainly try! I start to remember all the hairy details in that
setup code.

The first step may be something like this, which identifies all the
"repo init" entry points. This is basically a revert of e26f7f19b6
(repository: pre-initialize hash algo pointer - 2018-01-19) and doing
things the proper way, hopefully.

This is on 'master', independent from Stefan's series. I have another
patch on top of that series to remove the use of ignore_env in
sha1_file.c (and things seem to work). Basically whenever you have to
initialize the hash algorithm, there's a good chance you need to
initialize object store as well. But I'll hold that off until
Stefan's and this one are both merged.

But yeah, it looks like we need some surgery in setup.c if we want
something as pretty as repo_submodule_init() but for the main repo.
