I'm answering this separately, because it's a separate rant.

It's also totally bogus, but whatever.

Shawn, stop using whatever drugs you are using.

NOBODY EVER REBASES ANYTHING FOR SIGNED-OFF-BY.

If they do, they are doing things very very wrong.

Signed-off-by: is *purely* for sending patches by email. No git
operations involved. None. Nada. Zilch. No rebasing involved, because
there's not even a git repository involved, for chissake!

Once something is in git, it's not signed off on - there should be a
sign-off-chain from the author to the committer, and that's it.
Anything else would be crazy.

So stop the crazy rants. Stop with the bad drugs. Seriously. You're
acting crazy.

Linus
