Git garbage collection will delete and cleanup commits if they are not discoverable when working backward from some ref. This is why our old stable branch deletion process required we tag the stable branch as $release-eol first. Looking at `git log origin/driverfixes/ocata ^origin/stable/ocata --no-merges --oneline` there are quite a few commits on the driverfixes branch that are not on the stable branch, but that appears to be due to cherry pick writing new commits. You have indicated above that you believe the two branches are in sync at this point. A quick sampling of commits seems to confirm this as well.

Thank you for following up on this.  I agee it is a good idea to remove 
the old driverfixes/ocata branch to avoid possible confusion in the future.


Sean, myself and the team worked to carefully cherry-pick everything 
that was needed in stable/ocata so I am confident that we are ready to 
remove driverfixes/ocata.
