refs.c: change resolve_ref_unsafe reading argument to be a flags field
resolve_ref_unsafe takes a boolean argument for reading (a nonexistent ref resolves successfully for writing but not for reading). Change this to be a flags field instead, and pass the new constant RESOLVE_REF_READING when we want this behaviour. While at it, swap two of the arguments in the function to put output arguments at the end. As a nice side effect, this ensures that we can catch callers that were unaware of the new API so they can be audited. Give the wrapper functions resolve_refdup and read_ref_full the same treatment for consistency. Signed-off-by: Ronnie Sahlberg <> Signed-off-by: Jonathan Nieder <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
