[llvm-dev] Workflow to commit changes using git alone (?)

Here's roughly what I currently would do to commit a patch in a local
branch (which I don't think involves svn):

$ git branch --set-upstream-to=origin/master patchbranch # Make the branch
track upstream master
$ git pull --rebase # Rebase patchbranch against upstream master
$ git llvm push # Commit
