    Ah, yes, precisely.  Thanks for the explanation: I wondered why
it didn't work.  I had thought that git reset --hard would be sufficient,
but perhaps that requires being less agressive with info/exclude :)

    Strangely, it had worked previously for some of my deeper history
investigation, but perhaps I just got lucky (or went far enough back
in time that the build system figured my machine was lying to it).

    Do I need to do anything other than `make maintainer-clean` to
operate in this manner, or are there other tricks that are important
if porting patches to stable branches for accurate testing?
