This patch series is a polished version of a series I posed in [1],
based on the subsequent discussion starting in [2]. It hardens the 'git
commit-graph write' code to handle two new types of object corruption
that previously resulted in a SIGSEGV, which are:

  - a commit which lists a parent that does not exist, or is corrupt

  - a commit which lists a corrupt tree, or omits the 'tree ' line

The series goes as follows: first, we introduce failing tests that
demonstrate the above two cases, then subsequent commits to fix each of
them in turn.

When reviewing this series, it is worth keeping in mind that this is
really only applying a band-aid to get around a quirk of the object
parsing code, which is graciously described by Peff in more detail in

Thanks in advance for your review. I'll deploy this in the meantime to
GitHub's fork and report back on the success in the next "What's
