The manpage for git-pull mentions -m in a comment:

--edit, -e, --no-edit
Invoke an editor before committing successful mechanical merge to further edit
the auto-generated merge message, so that the user can explain and justify the
merge. The --no-edit option can be used to accept the auto-generated message
(this is generally discouraged). The --edit (or -e) option is still useful if
you are giving a draft message with the -m option from the command line and
want to edit it in the editor.

but it is not accepted actually:

git pull --no-edit -m 'Restoring config etc from server' \
  origin server/GITCONFIG/master
fatal: No such remote or remote group: Restoring config etc from server

I'm not sure whether it is a bug of the implementation or of the documentation.

(I've also written down this issue at
https://bugzilla.altlinux.org/show_bug.cgi?id=29718 .)
