Hi,

I'm running git rev-list | git cherry-pick --stdin on a range of about
300 commits. Eventually the chery-pick dies with:

    error: cannot fork() for commit: Cannot allocate memory

Running valgrind shows me that the tree traversal code is leaking
gigabytes of memory (particularly unpack_callback). Since cherry-pick is
a very long running process all these allocations are never freed and
eventually I run out of memory. The worst offender and summary is:

==7986== 938,956,692 (929,961,582 direct, 8,995,110 indirect) bytes in

This is against recent git.git
(89740333e8d398f1da701e9023675321bbb9a85b). A workaround is to limit the
amount of commits per cherry-pick invocation, but can we somehow fix the
leaks?
