Fortunately we don't need to rebase for this. If you want the history
available in your local clone, you can add a git "graft" for it; this
is the recommended way to browse old Linux kernel history, for

If somebody wanted to write up instructions and post them on the XCB
wiki, that'd be great. :-)
