I don't understand this.  You don't want to see patches that are known
to introduce regressions, and you expect people to squash together known
buggy patches with their subsequent fix-ups before submitting.

So, if a Change-Id is supposed to refer back to an 'original' version of
a patch/commit, shouldn't there sometimes be more than one of them in
the version that goes upstream?  You do something very similar yourself
sometimes, with upstream references in stable backports.
