I've pulled this, but looking at the thing, I absolutely _hate_ your
merge commits.

They have no commit messages! They look like this:

Merge branches 'for-4.13/ish' and 'for-4.13/ite' into for-linus


which doesn't tell anybody anything.

Please. If you can't make a message for a merge, don't do the merge.
Send me the separate branches instead.

Or just write useful merge messages.

It's possible that you're running some truly ancient git version that
didn't start an editor by default for merges. If so, upgrade your git

Either way, it's not ok to do merges without explanations. We have
higher standards for kernel history than that.
