Reduce the use of fixed sized buffer passed to getcwd() calls by introducing xgetcwd() helper. * rs/strbuf-getcwd: use strbuf_add_absolute_path() to add absolute paths abspath: convert absolute_path() to strbuf use xgetcwd() to set $GIT_DIR use xgetcwd() to get the current directory or die wrapper: add xgetcwd() abspath: convert real_path_internal() to strbuf abspath: use strbuf_getcwd() to remember original working directory setup: convert setup_git_directory_gently_1 et al. to strbuf unix-sockets: use strbuf_getcwd() strbuf: add strbuf_getcwd()
