The first two of these fix real bugs, the rest just clean up some of the
less obviously "not actually a problem" issues identified by Clang's
static analyzer [1] and stack[2].

Stack is interesting in that it is designed to detect potentially
undesirable optimizations where undefined behaviour may be being invoked
unwittingly.  It only detected two error's in git.git, the first of
which is fixed by the final patch.  The second it describes as:

        bug: anti-algebra
        model: |
          %11 = icmp ult i8* %extra_args, %7, !dbg !342
          -->  %10 = icmp slt i64 %9, 0, !dbg !342
          %extra_args <u ((sext i32 %buflen to i64) + %extra_args)<nsw>
          -->  (-1 * (sext i32 %buflen to i64)) <s 0
          - daemon.c:522:0
        ncore: 1
          - daemon.c:520:0
            - pointer overflow

which shows that Clang has converted (simplifying from daemon.c:520):

        char *end = extra_args + buflen;
        if (extra_args < end)


        if (buflen < 0)

This doesn't look like it can ever be subject to pointer overflow, so I
have not considered the churn worth it here.
