Gah, sorry for that, I always forget to switch off my automated script
machinery during merge window.

Hmm, I am really not a big fan of rebasing public tree. People are
actually pulling the for-next branch and working on top of it.

Those merge commits are always only in for-next, the branch that gets
created for Linus before merge (by merging all the topic branches at once)
is not polluted by them.
