How do you do a move across git repos?
If John could do a pull of just drivers/staging/brcm80211 from staging-next
into wireless-testing to get just those files in sync, then a 'git mv' from
drivers/staging to drivers/net/wireless within wireless-testing would be
trivial. I don't know if such a pull is possible, but maybe somebody else
knows how and can enlighten me.
