How about this:

% git log --oneline --reverse --max-count=1 v1.8.1.5^..v1.8.1.6

In this case --max-count is acting as "start from the first commit
before the tip", not as "output a maximum of one commit". Given that
the name is max-count, I expect it to be the later.

And if max-count doesn't select a maximum of n commits, then what does?
