Hmmmm I'm still not 100% convinced this patch is the right way to go,
particularly with git where we have different sets of commit ids
depending upon whether you have a local git-svn checkout or a checkout
from the (more popular) git.qemu.org.

I'm happy for people who think this would be useful to persuade me
otherwise though.
