http-push: fix construction of hex value from path
The get_oid_hex_from_objpath takes care of creating a oid from a pathname. It does this by memcpy'ing the first two bytes of the path to the "hex" string, then skipping the '/', and then copying the rest of the path to the "hex" string. Currently it fails to increase the pointer to the hex string, so the second memcpy invocation just mashes over what was copied in the first one, and leaves the last two bytes in the string uninitialized. This breaks valgrind in t5540, although the test passes without valgrind: ==5490== Use of uninitialised value of size 8 ==5490== at 0x13C6B5: hexval (cache.h:1238) ==5490== by 0x13C6DB: hex2chr (cache.h:1247) ==5490== by 0x13C734: get_sha1_hex (hex.c:42) ==5490== by 0x13C78E: get_oid_hex (hex.c:53) ==5490== by 0x118BDA: get_oid_hex_from_objpath (http-push.c:1023) ==5490== by 0x118C92: process_ls_object (http-push.c:1038) ==5490== by 0x118E5B: handle_remote_ls_ctx (http-push.c:1077) ==5490== by 0x118227: xml_end_tag (http-push.c:815) ==5490== by 0x50C1448: ???
