Yeah I cannot see it in the web interface, too:

http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/wfg/writeback.git;a=shortlog;h=refs/heads/dirty-throttling-v7

But they are in the dirty-throttling-v7 branch at kernel.org:

Revert "writeback: scale dirty proportions period with writeout bandwidth"

This reverts commit 84a9890ddef487d9c6d70934c0a2addc65923bcf.
