That wasn't possible in this case.

This happened more than a week ago, as I needed to merge your tree into
net-2.6 to resolve a conflict there. That's what took in the iscsi
bug fix, and this is way before the merge window.

Then I needed to pull net-2.6 into net-next-2.6 to resolve conflicts
existing between those two trees.

And this is why I ended up having to do the merge :-)
