remote-curl: make --force-with-lease work with non-ASCII ref names
When we invoke a remote transport helper and pass an option with an argument, we quote the argument as a C-style string if necessary. This is the case for the cas option, which implements the --force-with-lease command-line flag, when we're passing a non-ASCII refname. However, the remote curl helper isn't designed to parse such an argument, meaning that if we try to use --force-with-lease with an HTTP push and a non-ASCII refname, we get an error like this: error: cannot parse expected object name '0000000000000000000000000000000000000000"' Note the double quote, which get_oid has reminded us is not valid in an hex object ID. Even if we had been able to parse it, we would send the wrong data to the server: we'd send an escaped ref, which would not behave as the user wanted and might accidentally result in updating or deleting a ref we hadn't intended. Since we need to expect a quoted C-style string here, just check if the first argument is a double quote, and if so, unquote it. Note that if the refname contains a double quote, then we will have double-quoted it already, so there is no ambiguity. We test for this case only in the smart protocol, since the DAV-based protocol is not capable of handling this capability. We use UTF-8 because this is nicer in our tests and friendlier to Windows, but the code should work for all non-ASCII refs. While we're at it, since the name of the option is now well established and isn't going to change, let's inline it instead of using the #define constant.
