Please don't do this.

There was no reason for it, and the commit message says:

"Merge branch 'for-4.17' into for-linus"

which also doesn't tell why that merge would have existed.

You should just have asked me to pull "for-4.17". Or renamed the
branch to "for-linus". There was no reason for the merge that I can

So what I actually did was to just pull your 'for-4.17' branch
instead, which got me the exact same end result.
