Well here are this merge windows' stats:

(No merge commits counted, next-20121211 is the last linux-next before

Commits in v3.8-rc1 (relative to v3.7): 10901
Commits in next-20121211: 11857
Commits with the same SHA1: 9322
Commits with the same patch_id: 492 (1)
Commits with the same subject line: 99 (1)

(1) not counting those in the lines above.

So commits in -rc1 that were "in" next-20121211: 9913 90.9%
(up from 83.5% last time)
Commits in -rc1 that were not in next-20120722: 988 9.1%

Pretty good, but it would be still nice to figure out where the last lot
came from. I have the "git log --oneline --no-walk" list if someone wants them.

Some break down of the onelines list:
grep for drm gives 100
btrfs gives 117
Quite a few of the rest appear to be bug fixes.

As for the 1944 commits left in linux-next ... 1303 are in the kvmtool
tree (most of these are in the tip tree as well - this has been pending a
merge to Linus since before 3.2 ...). There are another 254 commits in
the tip tree (maybe pending fixes), 118 in the xen-two tree and 81 in the
drop-experimental tree.
