resolve_ref was renamed to resolve_ref_unsafe in Git commit 8cad474
(Rename resolve_ref() to resolve_ref_unsafe(), 2011-12-12) to indicate
that it returns a static buffer that will be overwritten by the next
call.  CGit strdup's the returned value immediately so there's nothing
to worry about here.
