Well, the commit has been there long enough to mirror out, and show up 
on the web interface:

http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/jgarzik/netdev-2.6.git;a=shortlog;h=benet

therefore I am guessing there is some git user error here... but I could 
not say what, since I am unfamiliar with your style of git invocation.

I would recommend creating a new branch, or switching to an existing 
one, and then pulling into it.  Pulling from a branch always works in my 
experience, and that's what I've been doing since git was first written.

URL=git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/jgarzik/netdev-2.6.git
git checkout -b tmp master
git pull $URL benet

Regards,

	Jeff
