This sounds like it does what I want ... so I'd like to confirm
before wiring this into my scripts and fingers.

What I want is to get the latest from kernel.org...linus...master
and update my .refs/heads/linus with the new SHA1.

I'd like to be able to do that without touching what is in my
index, and without changing the state of any checked out files.

If that is what the above does, then you are my hero for today :-)
