What I tend to do in these cases is that I merge the dependent branches into
a temporary working branch, then merge in the "new" branch on top, and get the
diffstat from the last merge there.

It also looks like the base for this branch is something that is not a full
-rc, please only base your branches on -rcs since that makes merge history much
cleaner and easier to deal with on our side.

So, for example:

git checkout v3.6-rc5
git merge kirkwood/boards
git merge kirkwood/dt

And then you can use that HEAD as the reference in request-pull.
