57 of the differing changesets are normal merges (probably what Junio explained)
3 are duplicate changesets in hg, probably also related to that
27 changesets are octopus merge fixups

wrt octopus merges: in git, one merge commit can have an arbitrary
number of parents, but in hg a merge changeset always has 2 parents --
so a octopus merge is represented as multiple distinct changesets.
