No. You have totally destroyed your git tree.

In particular, commit e338b736f1aee59b757130ffdc778538b7db18d6 is crap,
crap, CRAP.

It's "Merging Linus tree", but it's not a merge at all: you have just
applied the _patch_ to merge the changes in my tree, but you haven't
actually told git to do so.

I don't know how/why you did that, but it's totally bogus, and I refuse to
pull from that tree. That's a 5000+ line diff, affecting about 180 files!

Now, when I pull from your tree, since the changes are already in mine,
git is smart and it will all _merge_ fine, and there are no changes to
those files as far as the end result is concerned. But that's still damn

Have you done things like that before, and I just didn't notice? And why?
