Please add something in the commit message (above the "---") about why
this new feature is useful. For example you could just say that it
will make it possible to implement bisecting on first parents which is
useful for people who don't test all the commits in the feature branch
they merge.

Outside the commit message, so after the "---", you could say that
this patch is based on pu so that it can be on top of
hn/bisect-first-parent, and that this patch is not finished as it
needs some tests. You could also have signaled that by using [RFC
PATCH] in the subject (see the --rfc option of git format-patch).

Thanks,
Christian.
