Changing the commits in git in anyway changes their ID, which has the
same effects as a rebase.

With this idea, Linus only has two choices:

1. pull the entire set of linux-next changes whether he likes them or not,
because he's going to get them either from the linux-next tree or someone
elses tree which is based upon that.

2. don't pull the changes, nor anyone elses tree if he hates the changes
in linux-next.

So really, Linus needs to ack the changes _before_ they go into linux-next.
