Hmmm, I see that you changed the signature of update_refs() to take an
array of pointers.  My suggestion was unclear, but I didn't mean that
the function signature had to be changed.  Rather, I meant that *within*
the function, you could have created an array of pointers to the
structures in the input array and thereafter accessed it via the pointers:

int update_refs(const char *action, const struct ref_update *updates_orig,
                int n, enum action_on_err onerr)
        struct ref_update **updates;

        updates = xcalloc(n, sizeof(*updates));
        for (i = 0; i < n; i++)
                updates[i] = &updates_orig[i];

However, your approach is also fine.  It will typically involve more
malloc()s but smaller memcpy()s (i.e., via ALLOC_GROW()) at the caller,
and since usually the number of ref_updates being done at one time will
be limited anyway, I don't see a reason to prefer one version over the

Thanks for making the change.
