This is the sixteenth series of hash function transition patches. This
series contains various fixes, mostly focused around the pack bitmap
code, the HTTP code, the archive code, the index, and parts of our Perl
code.

This is the second to last series required for a "stage 0" Git; that is,
one that can operate only with SHA-256, but not SHA-1. Observers will
notice a focus on getting rid of sha1_to_hex and null_sha1 as well as
the normal types of transforms; the next series will remove both of
these.

This series modifies the index code such that it can work with a hash
algorithm of any length. In order to do so, the structs involved were
changed to use flex array members and not store the hash in a fixed
array member. This design was chosen over a multiple struct approach
because it ensures that we have one consistent, well-tested code path
that works for both algorithms, as well as any algorithms in the future.
Comments on the approach or arguments for other designs are welcome.

This is a rather long series, but most of it is concentrated in a few
small areas, so hopefully it's a little easier to review because of
that.

To preview the series that come after this, there is an additional
series for stage 0 Git (object-id-part17 plus part of sha256-fixes),
plus potentially several series of test fixes (test-fixes-part4 and part
of sha256-fixes). Following that, I plan to introduce, under the
DEVELOPER Makefile flag, the actual code which supports
extensions.objectFormat and makes it so that it works
(transition-stage-4).
