Btw, this shows an irritating bug in your setup: your computer has its
clock set wildly incorrectly.

Git doesn't really _care_, but if you look at gitweb at this time, it will
annotate all the commits I pulled from you as being "right now", because
your computers clock was set several hours into the future, and thus your
timestamps are crap.

Please fix. The "author" times are correct (they get taken from the emails
or from the original commit that got cherry-picked, depending on how you
did things), but look for example at commit 5026b38c:

author Randy Dunlap <rdunlap@xxxxxxxxxxxx>
Fri, 22 Sep 2006 19:37:56 +0000 (12:37 -0700)
committer Sam Ravnborg <sam@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>
Mon, 25 Sep 2006 11:33:04 +0000 (13:33 +0200)

and I can tell you that you sure as hell didn't commit that on Monday,
September 25, at 11:33 UTC (or 13:33 in +0200), because right now it's
2:13 AM in UTC, and the date your commit got marked for is still more than
nine hours in the future (and was further off when you did it).

I'd suggest running NTP, or at least checking that your date is even
_remotely_ correctly set on your computer ;)
