   I'd like to, but I'm a noob when it comes to git and not finding much in
the way of tutorials showing how to using it with projects such as the
linux kernel. So I've started with U-Boot instead, hoping it's easier:

$ git clone --no-checkout git:// u-boot

# A remote named "origin" now points to Openmoko's U-Boot repository

$ cd u-boot
$ git checkout -b stable-for-denx remotes/origin/stable

$ git remote add -m master -f denx git://
$ git rebase remotes/denx/master
First, rewinding head to replay your work on top of it...

When you have resolved this problem run "git rebase --continue".
If you would prefer to skip this patch, instead run "git rebase --skip".
To restore the original branch and stop rebasing run "git rebase --abort".

$ gedit 2>/dev/null >/dev/null tools/setlocalversion &
[1] 5206
$ git rebase --skip

   I'll report back on the success or failure of this rebase.
