ls-remote: pass heads/tags prefixes to transport
Unlike its arbitrary text patterns, the --heads and --tags options to ls-remote are true prefixes. We can pass this information to the transport code. If the v2 protocol is in use, that will reduce the size of the ref advertisement. Note that the test added here succeeds both before and after the patch. This is an optimization, not a bug-fix; it's just making sure we didn't break anything. Signed-off-by: Jeff King <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
