OK, so the base stayed the same, but you recommitted all the same patches
(I didn't check to see if the commit messages changed) which due to some
other change caused conflicts in linux-next today :-( Not really a
biggie, but generally, you really shouldn't rewrite your commits just
before sending them to Linus.

At this point, you should just reset your next included branch to be in
Linus' tree beyond where Linus merged your tree, then it will be
effectively empty (unless you then add some more patches on top - but at
this point those should only be fixes).
