I'm confused. Why would we re-open packed-refs at all if the stat
information hasn't changed?

read_packed_refs is only called from get_packed_ref_cache, and we only
do so if !refs->packed. And refs->packed is only NULL if we haven't read
the file yet, or it is stat-dirty.

If that is working as intended, then we should generally only open and
read packed-refs once per invocation of git.
