[PATCH 3/5] Force writing ref if it doesn't exist.

From: Shawn Pearce <spearce@spearce.org>
Date: 2006-05-19 17:29:05
Normally we try to skip writing a ref if its value hasn't changed
but in the special case that the ref doesn't exist but the new
value is going to be 0{40} then force writing the ref anyway.
