How about ${REV}^0 into

        nREV=$(git rev-parse "${REV}")^0

and use it where you need an object name that needs to be parsed by
get_sha1(), e.g.
        git checkout -q "$nREV^0"

I would suggest a helper function in git-sh-setup, something like:

        peel_committish () {
                case "$1" in
                        peeltmp=$(git rev-parse --verify "$1") &&
                        git rev-parse --verify "$peeltmp^0"
                        git rev-parse --verify "$1^0"
