    am --rebasing: get patch body from commit, not from mailbox
    Rebasing a commit that contains a diff in the commit message results
    in a failure with output such as
      First, rewinding head to replay your work on top of it...
      Applying: My cool patch.
      fatal: sha1 information is lacking or useless
      Repository lacks necessary blobs to fall back on 3-way merge.
      Cannot fall back to three-way merge.
      Patch failed at 0001 My cool patch.
    The reason is that 'git rebase' without -p/-i/-m internally calls 'git
    format-patch' and pipes the output to 'git am --rebasing', which has
    no way of knowing what is a real patch and what is a commit message
    that contains a patch.
    Make 'git am' while in --rebasing mode get the patch body from the
    commit object instead of extracting it from the mailbox.
    Patch by Junio, test case and commit log message by Martin.

Maybe Martin or Junio immediately see whats going wrong here? I would
need to further dig into the git-am code to find out how to fix it.
