My reading of the earlier parts of the series is that Linus wanted
us never dwim "for-upstream" to "tags/for-upstream" or any other ref
that happens to point at the same commit as for-upstream you have.
The changes done for that purpose covered various cases a bit too
widely, and "request-pull ... tags/for_upstream" were incorrectly
stripped to a request to pull "for_upstream", which was fixed by
5aae66bd (request-pull: resurrect "pretty refname" feature,
2014-02-25).

But that fix does not resurrect the dwimming forbid by the earlier
parts of the series to turn "for_upstream" into "tags/for_upstream".

What would you get if you do this?

    $ git request-pull origin/master \
      git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/virt/kvm/mst/qemu.git \
      tags/for_upstream | grep git.kernel.org
