Yeah. This is why I hate people who rebase too much.
I don't mind rebases per se, but when they happen within the last few
days, it just tells me that "that tree got no testing".
So guys: feel free to rebase. But when you do, wait a week afterwards.
Don't "rebase and ask Linus to pull". That's just _wrong_. It means that
the tree you asked me to pull has gotten zero testing.
And sometimes that lack of testing is more obvious than other times. In
this case, it was pretty damn obvious.
