Could you explain the problem here in more detail?  I don't see the
difference this is going to make here - your topic/asoc branch already
contains the upstream merge and all that should happen if I reset my
history is that the metadata for the merge commit changes.  With the
current branches your pull would just generate a fast forward.

The issue I'm aware of is with constantly pulling up mainline or other
merged branches into the topic branch during normal development since
that creates a merge heavy history which is harder to read and bisect
but that's not what's happened here.

I should be able to do that, but like I say I'm not sure I understand
the problem.
