It is meaningless to time a command whose main output is redirected to
the null device, because a clever program could simply do nothing in
that case.  (I have no idea whether git does that.)

The `log' command exists to produce output, so please either time it
when it outputs to the screen or redirect to a real file, because
that's the practical use-case that should be of interest.
