Not quite - it needs to be applied while merging, rather than applied
separately. It's a conflict, even though it's not a data-conflict, but a
semantic one.

But that's trivial enough. "git pull --no-commit" + fixup + "git commit"
is trivially done, now that I was fore-warned. Thanks.

before the merge.

That's ok, but I already did the trivial merge, which actually had another
conflict too (which showed up as a real data conflict on the Kconfig
