The fundamental difference would be that each merge increases the
complexity of the branch, and as such, has a cost. Sometimes, I get
some merge conflicts; in such a case I want to prepare a new patch that
applies cleanly onto master, such that I can push it easily when the
time is right.

Also, the workflow of rebasing a patchstack allows me to clearly see
which patches are yet to be upstreamed. A history with merges - not so

I have configured git to sign all my commits, so it re-signs all the
patches I apply each time I rebase. I admit, this only works because I
have access to the repository itself, and as such, my key is authorized.
