    Use is_absolute_path() in diff-lib.c, lockfile.c, setup.c, trace.c

    Using the helper function to test for absolute paths makes porting easier.

    This is needed on Windows since open files cannot be unlinked.

  1. fully resolve symlinks when creating lockfiles

    Make the code for resolving symlinks in lockfile.c more robust as
    1. Handle relative symlinks
    2. recursively resolve symlink chains up to 5

    When locking in a symlinked repository, try to lock the original.

    In a working tree prepared in new-workdir (in contrib/), some files in .git/
    directory are symbolic links to the original repository.  The usual sequence of
    lock-write-rename would break the symbolic link.
    Ideally we should resolve relative symbolic link with maxdepth, but I do not
    want to risk too elaborate patch before 1.5.3 release, so this is a minimum
    and trivially obvious fix.  new-workdir creates its symbolic links absolute,
    and does not link from a symlinked workdir, so this fix should suffice for now.

    War on whitespace

    This uses "git-apply --whitespace=strip" to fix whitespace errors that have
    crept in to our source files over time.  There are a few files that need
    to have trailing whitespaces (most notably, test vectors).  The results
    still passes the test, and build result in Documentation/ area is unchanged.

  1. lockfile: record the primary process.

    The usual process flow is the main process opens and holds the lock to
    the index, does its thing, perhaps spawning children during the course,
    and then writes the resulting index out by releaseing the lock.
    However, the lockfile interface uses atexit(3) to clean it up, without
    regard to who actually created the lock.  This typically leads to a
    confusing behaviour of lock being released too early when the child
    exits, and then the parent process when it calls commit_lockfile()
    finds that it cannot unlock it.
    This fixes the problem by recording who created and holds the lock, and
    upon atexit(3) handler, child simply ignores the lockfile the parent

  1. git-read-tree --index-output=<file>

    This corrects the interface mistake of the previous one, and
    gives a command line parameter to the only plumbing command that
    currently needs it: "git-read-tree".
    We can add the calls to set_alternate_index_output() to other
    plumbing commands that update the index if/when needed.

  2. _GIT_INDEX_OUTPUT: allow plumbing to output to an alternative index f…

    When defined, this allows plumbing commands that update the
    index (add, apply, checkout-index, merge-recursive, mv,
    read-tree, rm, update-index, and write-tree) to write their
    resulting index to an alternative index file while holding a
    lock to the original index file.  With this, git-commit that
    jumps the index does not have to make an extra copy of the index
    file, and more importantly, it can do the update while holding
    the lock on the index.
    However, I think the interface to let an environment variable
    specify the output is a mistake, as shown in the documentation.
    If a curious user has the environment variable set to something
    other than the file GIT_INDEX_FILE points at, almost everything
    will break.  This should instead be a command line parameter to
    tell these plumbing commands to write the result in the named
    file, to prevent stupid mistakes.

  1. Fix infinite loop when deleting multiple packed refs.

    It was stupid to link the same element twice to lock_file_list
    and end up in a loop, so we certainly need a fix.
    But it is not like we are taking a lock on multiple files in
    this case.  It is just that we leave the linked element on the
    list even after commit_lock_file() successfully removes the
    We cannot remove the list element in commit_lock_file(); if we
    are interrupted in the middle of list manipulation, the call to
    remove_lock_file_on_signal() will happen with a broken list
    structure pointed by lock_file_list, which would cause the cruft
    to remain, so not removing the list element is the right thing
    to do.  Instead we should be reusing the element already on the
    There is already a code for that in lock_file() function in
    lockfile.c.  The code checks lk->next and the element is linked
    only when it is not already on the list -- which is incorrect
    for the last element on the list (which has NULL in its next
    field), but if you read the check as "is this element already on
    the list?" it actually makes sense.  We do not want to link it
    on the list again, nor we would want to set up signal/atexit
    over and over.

  1. simplify inclusion of system header files.

    This is a mechanical clean-up of the way *.c files include
    system header files.
     (1) sources under compat/, platform sha-1 implementations, and
         xdelta code are exempt from the following rules;
     (2) the first #include must be "git-compat-util.h" or one of
         our own header file that includes it first (e.g. config.h,
         builtin.h, pkt-line.h);
     (3) system headers that are included in "git-compat-util.h"
         need not be included in individual C source files.
     (4) "git-compat-util.h" does not have to include subsystem
         specific header files (e.g. expat.h).

  1. Better error message when we are unable to lock the index file

    Most of the callers except the one in refs.c use the function to
    update the index file.  Among the index writers, everybody
    except write-tree dies if they cannot open it for writing.
    This gives the function an extra argument, to tell it to die
    when it cannot create a new file as the lockfile.
    The only caller that does not have to die is write-tree, because
    updating the index for the cache-tree part is optional and not
    being able to do so does not affect the correctness.  I think we
    do not have to be so careful and make the failure into die() the
    same way as other callers, but that would be a different patch.

  1. shared repository - add a few missing calls to adjust_shared_perm().

    There were a few calls to adjust_shared_perm() that were
     - init-db creates refs, refs/heads, and refs/tags before
       reading from templates that could specify sharedrepository in
       the config file;
     - updating config file created it under user's umask without
     - updating refs created it under user's umask without
     - switching branches created .git/HEAD under user's umask
       without adjusting.
    This moves adjust_shared_perm() from sha1_file.c to path.c,
    since a few SIMPLE_PROGRAM need to call repository configuration
    functions which in turn need to call adjust_shared_perm().
    sha1_file.c needs to link with SHA1 computation library which
    is usually not linked to SIMPLE_PROGRAM.

  1. Make index file locking code reusable to others.

    The framework to create lockfiles that are removed at exit is
    first used to reliably write the index file, but it is
    applicable to other things, so stop calling it "cache_file".
    This also rewords a few remaining error message that called the
    index file "cache file".
