Hey, but we can have something like:

It goes all the way to the 0.12 kernel.

If someone wants to go that far, just clone that tree, merge it, etc.

Could that be the solution for this case as well?

I.e. the kernel history prior to what we have in linux.git can be
accessed via that other tree, history.git, can we have ndctl-history.git
and linux.git + ndctl from now on?

If you prefer to go full merge, then I think prefixing + SOB'ing should
be done, right?
