This is on a fresh unstable pull with git-core

This is also on a fresh checkout of the kernel source.

When I'd try to run darcs whatsnew or darcs changes, I'd get:

read(head): No such file or directory

darcs failed:  No file .git/HEAD

However, .git/HEAD does exist and strace confirmed it was working.  On a
theory, I tried:

cat .git/HEAD
ref: refs/heads/master

cp .git/refs/heads/master .git/HEAD

That seems to make darcs happier, but unhappily, it totally breaks
git itself.

Yes, Git is broken.  Unfortunately, I won't have time to work on it in
the near future.

Sorry for that,

Git support has been completely removed, if I understand correctly.
