Thanks.

It looks more invasive mostly because you renamed check_blob_write()
to check_write().  While I think that rename is a right thing to do
(it used to be "if we are attempting to write to blob, signal an
error", but we could have called it check_write(), meaning "we are
attempting to write; error out if that should not be allowed"), it
would have been much easier to review and comment if this were done
as a separate clean-up preparatory patch.  It wouldn't have had to
touch this many lines, I would think.

And "clean-up existing code as a separate step, without changing the
behaviour, before starting to work on a new feature" is actively
encouraged around here.

I do not see a need for these four lines in your e-mail.  All the
necessary information is already in your e-mail header.  Please drop
them, perhaps except for the "Subject:" in-body header.

If you are going to have a discussion and then your proposed patch,
please do it this way (without the 8-space indentation I added for
illustration) using the "-- >8 --" scissors line:

        ...
        Okay, reworked version is below.

        -- >8 --
        Subject: config: teach "git config --file -" to read from the standard

        Extend "git config --file" interface to allow reading from
        the standard input

        Editing or setting value is an error.

        Signed-off-by: ...

         diffstat and patch here
        
The in-body header "Subject: " is there to let you retitle the
commit.

> Editing stdin or setting value in stdin is an error.

Good thinking.  Even comes with tests to cover these cases.  Good.

If we are changing the function signature of git_config_with_options()
anyway, would it be even a better idea to introduce something like:

        struct config_source {
                int use_stdin;
                const char *config_file;
                const char *config_blob;
        };

        static struct config_source given_config_source;

and have one _fewer_ parameter to the function, instead of adding
one extra parameter?

So the above callchain will set top.name to the string "<stdin>".
How would that interact with the code in handle_path_include() that
makes sure that relative config includes are only allowed in file
with known location?

Other than that, I didn't spot any issue in this round looks.  It
seems to be almost there.

Thanks.
