Your analysis is correct, but I think the pros-and-cons of the your
squashable change boils down to the choice between:

 - leaving it in will keep similarity between tree and blob
   codepaths (both have mark_X_uninteresting(); and

 - reducing cycles by taking advantage of the explicit knowledge
   that mark_X_uninteresting() recurses for a tree while it does not
   for a blob.

But I have a suspicion that my patch may break if any codepath looks
at the current flag on the object and decides "ah, it already is
marked" and punts.

It indeed looks like mark_tree_uninteresting() does have that
property.  When an uninteresting tag directly points at a tree, if
we propagate the UNINTERESTING bit to the pointee while peeling,
wouldn't we end up calling mark_tree_uninteresting() on a tree,
whose flags already have UNINTERESTING bit set, causing it not to
