In the Linux kernel tree, commit 0136db586c028f71e7cc21cc183064ff0d5919
is a bit "odd".
If I go to look to see what release it was in, I normally do:
$ git describe --contains 0136db586c028f71e7cc21cc183064ff0d5919
However, it really showed up first in the 3.5-rc1 kernel release, as can
be seen by doing the following:
$ git tag --contains 0136db586c028f71e7cc21cc183064ff0d5919
This commit ended up coming into Linus's tree in two different places,
both in 3.5-rc1 and in 3.6-rc1, through different merge requests, so it
seems to be tricky to figure out when it "first" went in.
Asking Linus about this, he tried the following:
$ git name-rev --tags 0136db586c028f71e7cc21cc183064ff0d5919
$ git rev-list 0136db586c028f71e7cc21cc183064ff0d5919..v3.5-rc1 | wc
11415 11415 468015
$ git rev-list 0136db586c028f71e7cc21cc183064ff0d5919..v3.4-rc1 | wc
0 0 0
$ git rev-list 0136db586c028f71e7cc21cc183064ff0d5919..v3.6-rc1 | wc
22279 22279 913439
which shows that there are "less" commits to get from this commit to
v3.5-rc1 instead of v3.6-rc1, so something odd is going on here.
I can reproduce this right now with git version 184.108.40.206.g31e0100
