    No. Git is right in asking you to test that commit: you are ignoring
    branches and merges.

    Example
    ========

    Linus Tree Usb Tree

    v2.6.33-rc2
    | \
    | | commit A (version is v2.6.33-rc2)
    | | commit B ( " )
    v2.6.33 | commit C ( " )
    | __/
    | __/
    | __/
    |_/
    X <--- MERGE

    So the commit you are testing it's like "commit A": it was done before
    (in time) v2.6.33, on a kernel based on v2.6.33-rc2, but was merged in
    Linus' tree _after_ v2.3.33.

    So this this behaviour is normal :)
