I'm confused. This implies that we should be seeing summaries for other
commits, but not root commits, and this patch is bring them into
harmony.  But if I have a repo like this:

  git init -q repo &&
  cd repo &&
  for i in one two; do
    echo $i >file &&
    git add file &&
    git commit -q -m $i

then using stock git gives me this:

  $ GIT_EDITOR=true git rebase -i --root 2>&1 | perl -pe 's/\r/\\r\n/g'
  Rebasing (1/2)\r
  Rebasing (2/2)\r
  Successfully rebased and updated refs/heads/master.

but with your patch, I get:

  $ GIT_EDITOR=true git.compile rebase -i --root 2>&1 | perl -pe 's/\r/\\r\n/g'
  Rebasing (1/2)\r
  [detached HEAD 60834b3] one

   1 file changed, 1 insertion(+)
   create mode 100644 file
  Rebasing (2/2)\r
  Successfully rebased and updated refs/heads/master.

Am I misunderstanding the purpose of the patch?
