I've deleted the tag since.  If you try pulling from

   git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/kernel/git/broonie/regmap.git topic/patch

it should DTRT (I hope).

I'm not sure it's much of an issue, but I guess it's not a big deal.
I'd prefer to use the signed tags for the fixes if that's OK, but I'll
omit them for development branches.  Or hold back on pushing to you so
often or something (we're integration testing via -next after all).
