No need to rebase. It just makes it harder for me to pick one pull
over another, since it would mix the two things together.

I'll notice the semantic conflict as I do my merge build test, and
it's easy for me to fix as part of the merge - whichever one I merge

It's good if both sides remind me about the issue, but these kinds of
conflicts are not a problem.

And yes, it does happen that I miss conflicts like this if I merge
while on the road and don't do my full build tests, or if it's some
architecture-specific thing or a problem that doesn't happen on my
usual allmodconfig testing.  But neither of those cases should be
present in this situation.
