I saw that earlier message from Linus, too. :)

For a change like this, I don't think it matters either way. Whatever is
the content of that file, my intent is to move it to a new location. So
if you did have changes, moving them along with it would be the right

That said, I'm not at all opposed to having more data in the patch. Even
if the "apply" side doesn't do anything useful with the "index" line in
such a case, it's possible it could help with tracking down a mis-merge
or other confusion after the fact.

What I don't think we would want, though, is for a change on your side
to reject a patch like mine (a sort of "RENAME/MODIFY" conflict, I
guess, where "am" says "I can't move 1234abcd to this new filename,
because that's not what I have at that path"). Our merges are already
happy to port changes around when there's a rename on another branch,
and this case is no different.
