clone: die on errors from unpack_trees
When clone is populating the working tree, it ignores the return status from unpack_trees; this means we may report a successful clone, even when the checkout fails. When checkout fails, we may want to leave the $GIT_DIR in place, as it might be possible to recover the data through further use of "git checkout" (e.g., if the checkout failed due to a transient error, disk full, etc). However, we already die on a number of other checkout-related errors, so this patch follows that pattern. In addition to marking a now-passing test, we need to adjust t5710, which blindly assumed it could make bogus clones of very deep alternates hierarchies. By using "--bare", we can avoid it actually touching any objects. Signed-off-by: Jeff King <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
