Depends how you commit it back; in theory you should be able to hg
export the changeset and hg import --exact it to the gate repository,
which will attach it to the same parent changesets. I've done this
between icedtea and JDK7 repositories.
The only problem I do foresee is jtreg as I doubt the comments for
these changesets have Sun bug IDs... sigh.-
