If one mix git svn rebase and the rockbox git mirror then it will get
bad if you get a commit from subversion after its log was edited.

It's because you will get 2 different histories, and needs manual
changes on the git repo each time.

And of course after it is changed, it will break the trees of people
who have got the commit from subversion before its log was edited.
