The argv_array_detach function (and associated free() function) was really only useful for transferring ownership of the memory to a "struct child_process". Now that we have an internal argv_array in that struct, there are no callers left. Signed-off-by: Jeff King <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
