Because you applied it twice. in two different branches.

It's there in both your "stage-for-3.10" and "ra-next" branch, commits
505f14f7b8d4 and 921f3ac4c3f2 respectively.

You then merged things in commit 9b0271d8ca4d ("Merge branch
'stage-for-3.10' of git:// into
ra-next") and it all merged without any conflicts because the patches
are identical and there wasn't any other work on top of it in either
branch. But that doesn't change the fact that there are two distinct
commits that just happen to have the same patch. So "git shortlog"
will show it.

I would seriously suggest using gitk regularly (limit it to just your
own stuff with something like "gitk origin.." or whatever) to see the
history of what you've done visually as often as possible, not only
does it show up very clearly if you do that, but it really helps to
have a feel for what you've done.
