In my mind, 'git pull --rebase' does default to @{u}, it just started
interpreting it differently in d44e712, but maybe I'm just being
defensive :-).

In a similar way, I think your patch is about interpreting the
upstream argument differently, not about changing the default upstream
argument. This is why I think "git rebase" and "git rebase
origin/master" should be the same (when origin/master is the
configured upstream).
