How did that happen? Turns out these are false positives.

Whenever I update any of the renesas-*-for-vX.Y branches, I merge
them into renesas-next, which is pulled into linux-next.
When a commit in a renesas-*-for-vX.Y branch turns out to be bad,
and the branch hasn't been pulled by soc yet, I just fix that by
rebasing the renesas-*-for-vX.Y branch, and resolving any conflicts
during the next merge into renesas-next.
So the bad commits are gone from the renesas-*-for-vX.Y branches,
and thus will never go upstream, but technically, they are still part
of linux-next.  Hence  they show up in the statistics you do not
want to be part of...

Perhaps I should just recreate renesas-next every time any of the
renesas-*-for-vX.Y branches needs to be rebased? I already recreate
renesas-next after each rc1 release.

In personal conversations with technical people, I call myself a hacker. But
when I'm talking to journalists I just say "programmer" or something like that.
