read_packed_refs(): do more of the work of reading packed refs
Teach `read_packed_refs()` to also * Allocate and initialize the new `packed_ref_cache` * Open and close the `packed-refs` file * Update the `validity` field of the new object This decreases the coupling between `packed_refs_cache` and `files_ref_store` by a little bit.
