100s "remote:" lines upon cloning from 12.5.4


after upgrading to latest 12.5.4 my git clone commands (both git or https) shows 102x “remote:” lines printed before “remote: Enumerating objects:” and 102x before “remote: Counting objects:”.

Previous version 12.5.2 was fine.

Tested also on the public https://gitlab.com/gitlab-com/gl-infra/infrastructure repo which shows the same strange things upon clone.

Tested on git client and 2.21.0 so it seems it’s not client-related.

Any fix ideas?
