This has been mentioned loudly and often on the git list, and this is
definatly the correct thing to do. I can see no other references to this
form in our stuff.

Except for
http://kernel.ubuntu.com/git?p=ubuntu/ubuntu-jaunty.git;a=commit;h=e4f65f4a323f7e02d348e57807b5 4965b2fd2b4b

Hardy/Intrepid have the same git syntax, but it will only be a problem
if git-core is backported.

Heh, doh. Yep you have already fixed this in Jaunty. I can see no
reason to want to compile an older kernel on a newer install (outside a
chroot) so we shouldn't need it elsewhere.

That's fine, I was only interested in it being fixed in Jaunty. I guess
I hadn't pulled a quite new enough git tree!

Thanks.
