One possible fix for this would be if you reuse our rerere cache. The
only reason we don't go insane with all the drm conflicts is that we
completely distributed conflict resolution. Developers push a patch,
script tells them there's a conflict, they resolve it, maintainers
never even notice.We only notice when we double-check the merge
resolution when rerere re-applies it for the real backmerge :-) The
merge order in drm-tip should also match what you have in linux-next,
so you should be able to entirely reuse them.
Anyway, if you trust us enough to scoop up random git rerere caches
(or at least use them to double-check your own), they're all public:
Yes we should probably gc them, but disk space is cheap.
