Yes, at least patch 1/3 and patch 2/3 can be squashed into one.

For the first class, if there are differences between branch and
its upstream, tracking info is displayed, but report nothing if they
are identical. I do think report something in this case is useful.
It may help me to find out which remote I am tracking, if there are
several remotes for my repo.

I think keep silence in this case is better.
