Subject: [Bug report] git diff stat shows unrelated diff
Date: Thu, 14 Feb 2019 13:52:58 +0530
Message-ID: <20190214082258.3mh3hcr2l6dl3wuf@vireshk-i7> (raw)

Hello,

I am not sure if it is a bug or not, but the output I got wasn't what
I was looking for. And so looking for some help. I was looking to send
pull request [1] to PM maintainer and was generating the request
against his tree [2], which already has kernel upto v5.0-rc6 merged in
it.

These are my local branches:

Branch A:

55538fbc79e9 cpufreq: qcom: Read voltage LUT and populate OPP
f896d06665ec cpufreq: qcom-hw: Move to device_initcall
1c7fc5cbc339 (tag: v5.0-rc2) Linux 5.0-rc2

Branch B:

a4f342b9607d PM / OPP: Introduce a power estimation helper
285881b51eb5 PM / OPP: Remove unused parameter of _generic_set_opp_clk_only()
bfeffd155283 (tag: v5.0-rc1) Linux 5.0-rc1

pm/linux-next branch already has Branch B merged in it (with an
earlier pull request).

Branch C (7c139d3f0f99) is a merge of Branch A and Branch B. When I
try to generate diff-stat with:

git diff -M --stat pm/linux-next..7c139d3f0f99

It shows me the diffstat between v5.0-rc1..v5.0-rc2 as well.

If I do

git diff -M --stat v5.0-rc2..7c139d3f0f99

it shows only the files that have changed in patches in branch A and
B.

Since pm/linux-next already has Branch B and all the rcs upto rc6, I
was expecting the output of first diffstat to be similar to second one
(without branch B stuff). Is the expectation incorrect ?
