No idea.  The tree has the object file in one of its pack files:

| rmk at ZenIV:[linux-2.6-arm.git]:<1020> GIT_DIR=. git cat-file -p 89e4d4b145bb7e73b4c45671a84b401a5d8694c1|head

and the pack info file lists all the pack files.  Maybe you have a hash
collision on a pack file with your repository?

I suggest you do as I've always recommended: make sure your tree is up to
date with Linus' tree before fetching my tree.  That way you avoid the
unnecessary download of large pack files.
