The powerpc.git tree is now identical to Linus' tree as of a day or so
ago.  There are several ways you can reset your tree:

- make a fresh clone of Linus' tree, and make its .git/remotes/powerpc
  point at the powerpc.git tree on kernel.org, or

- do "git fetch -f powerpc" (substitute whatever remote name you use
  for the powerpc.git tree) (according to Stephen Rothwell), or

- do a pull as you would normally do, then throw away the merge and
  the extra objects by doing:
	git reset --hard FETCH_HEAD
	git prune

- or you can delete the local tree and do a fresh clone.

I will start putting stuff in powerpc.git in the next day or so.
