pack-objects: do not get distracted by broken symrefs

It is quite possible for, say, a remote HEAD to become broken, e.g.
when the default branch was renamed.

We should still be able to pack our objects when such a thing happens;
simply ignore broken symrefs (because they cannot matter for the packing
process anyway).
