Argh, it's my fault that I overlooked that part, sorry.
The recent merges were still complex (extremely fine-split branches)
but they were no empty merges.  Then I seem to have overlooked the
middle carelessly.

All the empty merges were during my previous vacation, so it must have
been the leftover of the previous bad pull request.  Oh well.
