No, The log I meant is the commit log in the git repository. While I was 
porting the code, I made quite a few commits to my own git repository. I hope I 
can find an easy way to move the history of developing the driver to the 
incubator repository. 

However, the problem is that the code of the driver was checked in to my Hurd 
git repository and there are many irrelevant commits in the history of the 
branch for developing the user-level driver because I created the branch from 
the latest revision in the repository at that moment. I really should have 
created the branch based on the root commit of the repository:-(

Now I only want to check in the pcnet32 driver. I thought that if I generated 
patches of developing the driver and somehow applied them to the incubator 
repository, I could keep the development history. But I didn't manage to do it. 
I guess there should be no automatic way to do it. I have to apply one patch 
and check in the change manually one by one.
