Isn't it better if you are in a valid branch on the first place?
I might have made a wrong assumption.

I just sent a patch that takes care of this so that this bug doesn't
bit us in the future. Please give us feedback if I got it wrong
somehow (it would be better if you do it on the kernel ML but it is OK
to do it here).
