Just out of curiosity, is it possible to write a correct fix at all?
Even if the first statement in do_push() locks the HEAD ref, it's not
enough: the program may be wading around in git.c/setup.c when I
switch terminals and change HEAD, right?

So, our position on the matter is: no git command makes any guarantees
with respect to races, correct?
