make 'git clone' ask the remote only for objects it cares about
Current behavior of 'git clone' when not using --mirror is to fetch everything from the peer, and then filter out unwanted refs just before writing them out to the cloned repository. This may become highly inefficient if the peer has an unusual ref namespace, or if it simply has "remotes" refs of its own, and those locally unwanted refs are connecting to a large set of objects which becomes unreferenced as soon as they are fetched. Let's filter out those unwanted refs from the peer _before_ asking it what refs we want to fetch instead, which is the most logical thing to do anyway.
