send-pack: fix pipeline.
send-pack builds a pipeline that runs "rev-list | pack-objects" and sends the output from pack-objects to the other side, while feeding the input side of that pipe from itself. However, the file descriptor that is given to this pipeline (so that it can be dup2(2)'ed into file descriptor 1 of pack-objects) is closed by the caller before the complex fork+exec dance! Worse yet, the caller already dup2's it to 1, so the child process did not even have to. I do not understand how this code could possibly have been working, but it somehow was working by accident. Merging the sliding mmap() code reveals this problem, presumably because it keeps one extra file descriptor open for a packfile and changes the way file descriptors are allocated. I am too tired to diagnose the problem now, but this seems to be a sensible fix. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <junkio@cox.net>
