Hey, it was small and removed more lines than it added, so I pulled it.

Sadly, I didn't *look* at it until after I had already pushed out.

*THESE* things would have made me unpull it immediately, if I hadn't
done my test compile and pushed things out:

Merge branch 'master' of /Volumes/CaseSensitiveDisk/linux

There's two of those *stupid* merges that have no reason for existing,
no explanation, and are just ugly.

Don't do this, guys!

And if you know you do these by mistake, just get the current version
of git *pronto*, and install that instead of (or in addition to: "make
install" just installs it in your ~/bin directory, so if you make your
PATH look there first, you don't need anything else) your distro
version of git.

That will now bring up an editor for your merges, and maybe that will
make you go "Oh, this is f*cking STUPID", and realize that you
shouldn't be doing that merge!

Christ. I really don't like stupid unnecessary merges. And when they
are from "master" of some random badly named repository, I like them
even less. The above is really just a f*cking abomination, and says
"somebody is doing something horribly wrong".
