I'm reviewing the changes in the patch series, but while I understand
the visible behavior fairly well the internals of it aren't something
I've spent a lot of time in. Compounding that, I'm down to my final 3
days with Atlassian before I start a new job, so I'm juggling trying
to finish up all my work and/or hand things over to others.

Based on that, I definitely would not want work on 2.36 to hinge on me
getting a patch up. I would _love_ to (finally) contribute something
back to Git, and the community that has helped me so much over the
last 10 years, but I can't say exactly when I'd be able to post
something. There's another developer internally who is also looking at
this, but it's been a number of years since he worked in C.

I guess all that's a long-winded way of saying a revert might be the
more timely option, for decoupling resolving this issue from the 2.36
timeline. That would also mean Patrick would be able to review any fix
that was posted, which seems valuable since he did the original work.
