Hmm, this is a regular branch, but you *usually* use a tag, and the
format of the pull-request imples that too:

Is there perhaps a tag I should pull instead?

That sounds vaguely like an on-disk change that may have issues
with systems that regularly switch between older and newer kernel versions.

Could you elaborate on it a bit more, thanks!

Never mind, I see it. It's 'ext4_for_linus'.

So here's the odd 'git' trick of the day.  Do

   git ls-remote
git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tytso/ext4 | less -S

to see all the branches and tags. In there, we see the branch you
asked me to pull:

  5e44f8c374.. refs/heads/dev

and then we can see if perhaps any of the tags have that same commit
when peeled. So search for 5e44f8c374, and sure enough:

  ..
  4e4d525149..  refs/tags/ext4_for_linus
  5e44f8c374..  refs/tags/ext4_for_linus^{}
  ..

so that 'ext4_for_linus' tag (which obviously has a different SHA1
than the commit it points to) points to the same commit (the "^{}" is
just the git SHA1 expression for "commit pointed to by object").

So pulling 'ext4_for_linus' instead of 'dev' will get me the same
commits you asked me to pull, with the added tag information that your
pull request containes.

Now I just wonder why your pull request said 'dev' at all.

So I should do "git request-pull origin git://... ext4_for_linus" next
time, right?

Sorry about that.  I thought it had included the reference to tag
automatically since the text of the tag showed in the request-pull
text.

> Now I just wonder why your pull request said 'dev' at all.

Because that was the name of the branch head that I used; sorry about
that.

It's an on-disk change, but it's gated by a superblock "feature flag".
So unless you actually activate the feature, you won't get it.  If you
do activate the feature, then you won't be able to switch between
older and newer kernel versions --- at least not and be able to mount
the file system read/write.  (We have different feature flags that
indicate whether or not the kernel is allowed to mount the file system
read/write, read/only, or not at all, if it doesn't know about a bit
in the COMPAT, COMPAT_RO, or INCOMPAT feature bitmak.)

The e2fsprogs support for this feature is currently only in the
(rewinding) proposed update branch, so it's not something that I
recommend people use just yet.  Even though it's been pretty well
tested, there are probably still some bugs we still need to shake out.

Right.

Apparently git request-pull is too damn smart for its own good, and
will find the tags even when they aren't mentioned, making you think
it made it to me. Bot it doesn't - so then I have to go search for
them by hand.

Added Junio and git to the cc: if git finds the tag and uses that for
the request-pull message text, then it should use the tagname for the
pull request line too. Or, alternatively, don't be smart at all, and
force users to name the tag explicitly. The current "both smart and
dumb" combination seems to be the worst of both world.
