[PATCH] remote: check config validity before creating rewrite struct
Junio C Hamano

When parsing url.foo.insteadOf, we call make_rewrite() and only then
check to make sure the value is a string (and return an error if it
isn't). This isn't quite a leak, because the struct we allocate is part
of a global array, but it does leave a funny half-finished struct.

In practice, it doesn't make much difference because we exit soon after
due to the config error anyway. But let's flip the order here to avoid
leaving a trap for somebody in the future.

This was a minor cleanup I mentioned in:


but didn't get picked up.
