Here is a tested (in the sense that it passes the test suite, and
also in the sense that an empty pull in the kernel history gives
quick turnaround) patch.  As I do not think we would want to revert
5802f81 (fmt-merge-msg: discard needless merge parents, 2012-04-18)
which was a correctness fix, I think we would rather want to do
something like this.

Subject: paint_down_to_common(): parse commit before relying on its timestamp

When refactoring the merge-base computation to reduce the pairwise
O(n*(n-1)) traversals to parallel O(n) traversals, the code forgot
that timestamp based heuristics needs each commit to have been
parsed.  This caused an empty "git pull" to spend cycles, traversing
the history all the way down to 0 (because an unparsed commit object
has 0 timestamp, and any other commit object with positive timestamp
will be processed for its parents, all getting parsed), only to come
up with a merge message to be used.
