refs: loosen over-strict "format" check
The add_extra_ref() interface is used to add an extra-ref that is _not_ our ref for the purpose of helping auto-following of tags and reducing object transfer from remote repository, and they are typically formatted as a tagname followed by ^{} to make sure no valid refs match that pattern. In other words, these entries are deliberately formatted not to pass check-refname-format test. A recent series however added a test unconditionally to the add_ref() function that is called from add_extra_ref(). The check may be sensible for other two callsites of the add_ref() interface, but definitely is a wrong thing to do in add_extra_ref(). Disable it.
