In order to apply a kernel patch diff'd against an older kernel, I ran

	git checkout -b tmp v2.6.23
	git-am --signoff --utf8 /g/tmp/mbox

The patch applied successfully, but each time I run this, it starts an 
automated 'git gc' run...  even if there is nothing useful to gc:

IMO there is a broken hueristic in there somewhere...  I regularly run 
'git gc' on my repos...

Follow-up...   this is already becoming a PITA.

I am going through and rebasing multiple repos in the same repository... 
and it keeps running 'git gc' on each branch!  grrrr.

Step 1:
pull "../linux-2.6" into master branch of local repo.  this repo was 
created with "--reference".  It _might_ be reasonable to expect 'git gc' 
to be run:

> Total 462 (delta 345), reused 176 (delta 129)
> warning: There are too many unreachable loose objects; run 'git prune' to remove them.


Step 2:
In the same repo, rebase a branch (contains a single changeset), 
immediately following step #1:

> warning: There are too many unreachable loose objects; run 'git prune' to remove them.


Step 3:
Ditto, a second rebase in the same repo, immediately following step #2:

> [jgarzik@pretzel libata-dev]$ git-checkout new-eh && git-rebase master
> Switched to branch "new-eh"
> First, rewinding head to replay your work on top of it...
> HEAD is now at 7704a8b... Merge branch 'for-linus' of git://oss.sgi.com:8090/xfs/xfs-2.6

> Writing objects: 100% (4/4), done.
> Total 4 (delta 0), reused 0 (delta 0)
> warning: There are too many unreachable loose objects; run 'git prune' to remove them.


Step 4:
Ditto, a third rebase in the same repo, immediately following step #3:

> [jgarzik@pretzel libata-dev]$ git-checkout mv-ahci-pata && git-rebase master
> Switched to branch "mv-ahci-pata"
> First, rewinding head to replay your work on top of it...

Will the 'git gc' never end???

What happens if you try to run "git prune"?

Same behavior.

FWIW I run "git prune" immediately prior to "git push", _every_ time I 
push to master.kernel.org (git.kernel.org).
