It never should have made the merge in that state. Niv, I suggest
you stop using that broken script of yours to do checkins because you
do nothing but break stuff with it. Change logs like:

xiaki pmod2git xfs-linux-melb:xfs-kern:31210a

(http://oss.sgi.com/cgi-bin/cvsweb.cgi/xfs-linux/linux-2.6/xfs_stats.h?f=h#rev1.18)

in the CVS tree and busted git logs make it just about impossible to
track where something came from.

Cheers,

Dave.
