I think you should keep that entry, but you need to examine the
results in ChangeLog anyway.  git-merge-changelog does try to be smart
about where to put merged ChangeLog entries, but it cannot always do a
perfect job.  AFAICS, gitmerge.el doesn't fix that (maybe it should
try), so manual labor is still required.
