Sure, but in this case you were using plain "net-2.6" which is only
for bug fixes and is synced fairly rapidly to Linus, so I don't
see how this is relevant here.
net-2.6 is always just a sync mechanism, rarely generating merge
conflicts with other people, and not something people other than say
Jeff Garzik and John Linville (people who actively push to me) should
generally follow unless they want to. It's just the same to follow
Linus's tree especially as the -rcX process winds down.
If you had been using net-2.6.24 or something like that, yeah I
could see the issue :-)
