I'm confused about what the Linus said. It seemed that the branch cannot
be rebased after merged into linux-next under normal circumstances, why?

Linus found this issue by check commit time of commits, but I also found so
many commit in mainline are too young to be merged into linux-next before
merge to mainline. If the rebase is not recommended, why people like to
do rebase after commits are merged into linux-next?

Thanks

I pulled this, but I'm now unpulling it again.

Why are many of those commits only two hours old, and most of the rest
is from yesterday?

Has any of this been in linux-next?

And if it has, then why was it rebased, and why didn't you explain
*why* it was rebased if so?

I'm willing to pull this if it turns out it _has_ been in linux-next,
but I need explanations.

Linus

You should never rebase a public-facing branch.

What commits have you found, and are you sure those are not just merged
through email submissions to Linus instead of a git tree pull?  Please
note that some subsystems still use email, like Andrew Morton's.

As for why people like to rebase, I do not know, you will have to ask
them why they like to do bad things :)

does this help?

We can see that, last non-merge commit is just 2 hours older than 
merge-commits committed
by Linus, so these non-merge commits shouldn't contained in linux-next 
before merge into
mainline. Does me  misunderstand something?

Take a look at these and think about why they couldn't be in linux-next
beforehand :)

You might want to look at non-merge commits...

For bugfixes, yes, they can be accepted now for "high volume" subsystems
like networking.  You don't want those to be delayed, especially when
they are found to be fixes in the previous pull request for that
subsystem, right?

But what we do not want is a bunch of "quick, let's rebase our patches
on Linus's latest tree!" for normal commits as then we have no idea if
they really were tested out in linux-next or not.

thanks,

greg k-h
