This is _really_ annoying.

I'm checking that pull requests have been in linux-next, and that
rewording of the commit message just means that now that  commit
doesn't trigger as being in commit-next and I have to go chase it down
or just say "screw this, it adds a whole new driver that wasn't in

Guess which one is easier for me to do?

So don't do this crap.

I ended up looking up the original commit, but dammit, I'm not happy
about this. Why wasn't the RTC stuff sent last week like I asked
people to do? Now I'm in the middle of travels, and having to figure
out what parts were in linux-next to verify that it actually has
gotten at least some real test coverage, and that I'm not pulling
random stuff.
