Ehh. These are all from:
Author: Alex Williamson <[EMAIL PROTECTED]>
[IA64, X86_64] fix swiotlb sizing
in commit b63d6e09b432e6873d072a767c87218f8e73e66c.
And you've signed off on it.
git-diff-tree -p --pretty b63d6e09b432e6873d072a767c87218f8e73e66c |
to see it in all its glory.
Now, I suspect you didn't mean to commit that thing: it really looks like
you've mixed up your patches somehow, because the commit message seems to
match only a very small portion of the patch.
Did you perhaps have a failed merge or something that was in your index
when you applied that patch? If you have a dirty index when you do
"git-applymbox", it the commit done as part of the applymbox might commit
other state too.
(git-applymbox _does_ verify that the files that it patches are up-to-date
in the index, but it does _not_ verify that the index matches the current
HEAD. I guess I could add a sanity check for that...)

It's definitely not a bug in git-whatchanged, and I don't think you're
confused about how git-whatchanged is supposed to work. But I think you've
committed a bad patch.
