write_entry: fix leak when retrying delayed filter
When write_entry() retries a delayed filter request, we don't need to send the blob content to the filter again, and set the pointer to NULL. But doing so means we leak the contents we read earlier from read_blob_entry(). Let's make sure to free it before dropping the pointer. Signed-off-by: Jeff King <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
