thanks Heiko.

Note that such simpler conflicts can be kept just fine (i.e. there's
no hard need to revert) - especially now that Stephen has already
resolved it and tested the end result, and git-rerere will pick it
up in the future too.

The most valuable conflicts in linux-next are the ones that show
conflicts that should never occur: which happen due to trees doing
changes they should not do.
