Thanks.

It doesn't move it around, that's only how it looks. I removed enum
mc13xxx_id (above MC13XXX_NUMREGS) and added struct mc13xxx_variant
(below MC13XXX_NUMREGS). Git choosed to use the closing brace of enum
mc13xxx_id and struct mc13xxx_variant respectively as context (together
with the following empty line).
(For the new readers, here is how git represented the relevant part:

 #include <linux/regmap.h>
 #include <linux/mfd/mc13xxx.h>

-enum mc13xxx_id {
-	MC13XXX_ID_MC13783,
-	MC13XXX_ID_MC13892,
-	MC13XXX_ID_INVALID,
+#define MC13XXX_NUMREGS 0x3f
+
+struct mc13xxx;
+
+struct mc13xxx_variant {
+	const char *name;
+	void (*print_revision)(struct mc13xxx *mc13xxx, u32 revision);
 };

-#define MC13XXX_NUMREGS 0x3f
+extern struct mc13xxx_variant
+		mc13xxx_variant_mc13783,
+		mc13xxx_variant_mc13892;

 struct mc13xxx {
 	struct regmap *regmap;
...
)

The following would be an equivalent and (for humans) easier to review
patch:

 #include <linux/regmap.h>
 #include <linux/mfd/mc13xxx.h>

-enum mc13xxx_id {
-	MC13XXX_ID_MC13783,
-	MC13XXX_ID_MC13892,
-	MC13XXX_ID_INVALID,
-};
-
 #define MC13XXX_NUMREGS 0x3f

+struct mc13xxx;
+
+struct mc13xxx_variant {
+	const char *name;
+	void (*print_revision)(struct mc13xxx *mc13xxx, u32 revision);
+};
+
+extern struct mc13xxx_variant
+		mc13xxx_variant_mc13783,
+		mc13xxx_variant_mc13892;
+
 struct mc13xxx {
 	struct regmap *regmap;
...

But as this touches 17 lines compared to only 15 using the way git
choosed to represent patch 6, git used the smaller representation. (I'm
not sure this is the correct reason, but at least it sounds sensible.)
Usually this metric is sane, but here it's not. I don't know if you can
do anything about it? E.g. take the number of +, - and context blocks
into account. Then it would be 5 for the patch above vs. 7 for the
way git did it.
Or weight a context line containing

	#define MC13XXX_NUMREGS 0x3f

more than two lines one of which is empty and the other only contains a
}?

> - Patch 4 should come last, ie after "add support for mc34708"
Yeah, but it doesn't break bisectibility, and as the rtc patches go in via a
different tree (in fact akpm already took them) it doesn't matter much.

Best regards and thanks for your feedback
