You might have pulled it, but the commits in rcu/alpha-cocci suggest that the tree 
was also rebased:

 commit d19fa5187a69bd7685e9c7452ce9e339b1b079fc
 Author:     Mark Rutland <mark.rutland@....com>
 AuthorDate: Thu Oct 19 10:42:03 2017 -0700
 Commit:     Paul E. McKenney <paulmck@...ux.vnet.ibm.com>
 CommitDate: Sat Oct 21 12:52:09 2017 -0700

    COCCINELLE: treewide: kill off ACCESS_ONCE()

Note the "Commit:" field which says the commit was created by you, not by Mark.

Thanks,

	Ingo
