See how
ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/akpm/patches/2.6/2.6.25-rc5/2.6.25-rc5-mm1/broken-out
starts with 5813a19cba5735b629cdeb156863dab814759128 and ends with
816543f9bf2fb77ff52083216a4537eb4e3058ec. Use
5813a19cba5735b629cdeb156863dab814759128 as good and
816543f9bf2fb77ff52083216a4537eb4e3058ec as bad.
