That makes sense.  Git is looking at the URL and not realizing that it's
relative to the home directory.

[remote "upstream"]
        url = ../linux-2.6.git/
        fetch = +refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/upstream/*

If I change that to

[remote "upstream"]
        url = /home/b04825/git/linux-2.6.git/
        fetch = +refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/upstream/*

then everything works.

IMHO, this is a bug in git.
