What does this MR do?
This backport fixes for Git 2.11 to the
8-13-stable branch so that Debian packagers can prepare a new release.
Are there points in the code the reviewer needs to double check?
I've marked this as WIP since it depends on https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitlab-shell/merge_requests/120. Other than that, nothing to note.
Why was this MR needed?
Can someone help me with backporting git 2.11 patch to 8.13.x ? How complex is it?
Our Debian native package requires it and we are going for a hard freeze tomorrow. So, I kinda need to fix it tomorrow. It would be awesome if someone could give some pointers.
