No.

You have three real commits there.

And *six* unnecessary merges.

Why do you merge my tree? Is it the x86 tree, or is it the "general
development tree"?

If it's the x86 tree, it shouldn't need to merge everythign else all the
time. Certainly not if it means that moer than half the commits are just
merges.

Do nice topic branches, where each branch has a reason for existing. The
"x86-fixes-for-linus" branch has x86 fixes.

This happens almost every time somebody starts using git properly: at that
point the rebasing no longer hides bad habits.
