Oh, and in the (more common) case when you don't actually know the commit
ID, just the file that was changed, do

git-whatchanged -p include/linux/textsearch.h

which shows only the commits (and the _parts_ of those commits) that
change that particular file (or list of files: you don't have to limit
yourself to just one file - you can track a whole directory or an
arbitrary list of files/directories).

And no, my tree doesn't contain your patch. My tree just contains Al's
first part, that added the typedef and replaced the existing users of
"unsigned int __nocast gfp_mask" to use that typedef.

I'll merge the full series after 2.6.14..
