I'm subscribed to your git tree and filter out all updates for my
signed off by. An then I get those emails. So I get the "Pulled"
message regardless.

It's not really for you, but more for transparency in general. I have a
rule that I don't push anything to you that I haven't personally sent
to LKML as a separate patch.

It's not a big deal. I could make this a two step process, and send
these as my "for-next" patches so that people (including the authors of
the patch) know that I'm sending them upstream.
