Thank you.  Adding the strace made that test work, and a later
one hung with the same race condition.  Here's a patch that
describes the race, and adds a strategic sleep to make it easily
reproducible.

Not sure yet what is the right way to fix this.  And I don't know
if it's just git-remote-testgit that has the problem because it
forks an importer, or if other remote helpers would be similarly
affected.

The easiest fix is to invoke "python -u" in
git-remote-testgit.py, or do

    sys.stdin = os.fdopen(sys.stdin.fileno(), 'r', 0)

But I'm not sure if this works on all systems.  We could also
consider adding a handshake after "export", to give the helper
time to get ready.

Subject: [PATCH] demonstrate git-remote-testgit race

Test t5800-remote-helpers "pushing to local repo" can hang
in a race condition between git push and git-remote-testgit.

On the writer side, "git push" invokes push_refs_with_export(),
which sends to stdout the command "export\n" and immediately
starts up "git fast-export".  The latter writes its output stream
to the same stdout.

On the reader side, remote helper "git-remote-testgit" reads from
stdin to get its next command.  It uses getc() to read characters
from libc up until \n.  Libc has buffered a potentially much
larger chunk of stdin.  When it sees the "export\n" command, it
forks "git fast-import" to read the stream.

If fast-export is faster than git-remote-testgit + git
fast-import, the fast-export output can end up in libc's buffer,
rather than in git fast-import.  The latter blocks on a now-empty
stdin.

This patch demonstates the problem.
