Sorry for the delay. I'd just been travelling for a few days and I
didn't have remote access to the box I used to generated the pull
request. Now that I've been able to have a look at the bash history, I
can see what has happened....

git request-pull gfs2-merge-window git:// >my.pull

What what I'd used to generate the request. Which is incorrect in that
it should have been:

git request-pull master git:// gfs2-merge-window >my.pull

but it seems by putting the arguments in the wrong order, I still got a
pull request generated, but without the diffstat, which is probably why
I didn't spot my mistake.

Anyway, apologies for having messed this up - I'll make a note to check
this in future,
