I think that is sensible. The assertion that "invalid != empty" is
probably sane, because we handle the empty tree as internal magic. But I
do not see any reason we should be hitting this code path regularly with
an invalid tree, short of repository corruption, so in practice I don't
think it matters.
This does introduce a die() where there was not one previously, and that
can make things harder to diagnose/debug in a corrupted repository. But
it looks like this is limited to the history-simplification code, and I
suspect that it is not commonly used in the case of corruption.
So I think the patch looks fine.
