To view what changes are on branch "smtms-on-leaf/btxhalted" but not on
master you can use "git log ..smtms-on-leaf/btxhalted". Notice the two

There are six commits on that branch. Five of them contain the changes
that address the issue, the sixth one contains all the cosmetic changes.
Because all the cosmetic changes are whitespace changes, telling git (or
gitk) to ignore whitespace when producing diffs, would save you the trouble.
At the end, one tip from me: you can instruct gitk to show you a remote
branch like that: "gitk john/coolbranch".

:git://leaf.dragonflybsd.org/~smtms/dragonfly.git, branch "btxhalted".
:*Everybody* should test that these changes don't break booting for them.
You need to synchronize your git repo with crater/master to reduce
the size of the patch set.
The diff set also contains a huge number of cosmetic changes. I
would much rather just have the changes that address the issues
