Yes, I always describe the merge commits. Linus also particular about
having *good reasons* for merges.

This is why I can't fix the hmm.git to have rc5 until I have patches
to apply..

Probbaly I will just put CH's series on rc5 and merge it with the
cover letter as the merge message. This avoid both rebasing and gives
purposeful merges.
