You can see an example of the usage in:

in the `scripts/` sub dir (flow is `cronjob` → `filter.sh` → `git

I think the big difference is rather than `--all` you need to give it
the `previous..now` range since that is the update you wish to do
(first time around you just give it `now`).

The devicetree-rebasing scripting arranges that by keeping the previous
in a separate branch.
