you might get confused by the definition of 'on top'. 'on top' as being a
child, or 'on top' as being more recent.

git log A.. will list all commits who are not an ancestor of A, which are
reachable in your branch. but some of these commits can be older than A, and
still aren't ancestor of A.

to me git format-patch A.. if run from your branch, will list all the
commits which are in our OMAP4 branch but not in ubuntu master.
