Before and after your patch, git_default_config() is called once per
config key. Before the patch, it made sense, but after the patch, it
doesn't anymore, as it loads the whole config file in one call.

I think it's OK to have this as an intermediate patch, but it should be
clear to reviewers.

At the end of your series, git_default_config should become an
argumentless function.

Actually, I'm wondering whether it makes sense to keep
git_default_config as-is, and introduce a new function like
git_load_default_config(void), initially empty. Then, move and change
code from git_default_config(...) to git_load_default_config(), and
finally remove git_default_config(...) once it's empty.

You have several decl-after-statements in your patch. You should have
something like this in config.mak to catch them:

CFLAGS += -Wdeclaration-after-statement -Wall -Werror

There are several (long unsigned int*) casts that seem useless to me.
Useless casts distract the reader, and prevent usefull warnings from the

Actually, I'm wondering whether these casts are safe (they cast from
size_t * to ulong *). On Windows 64 bits for example, sizeof(size_t) ==
8 and sizeof(unsigned long) == 4 if google informed me correctly. On a
big-endian machine, this would be totally broken.

It is probably safer to add a new git_config_get_size_t analog to

This cast is needed only because notes_ref_name is declared as
non-const, but a better fix would be to make the variable const, and
remove the cast.

The following patch solves these issues (modulo the question above on
cast safety).
