Your configuration is ok. I was wrong recommending git revert for this, 
I think it can't work, because it tries to merge, sees that trie was
merged in the past and then it tries to merge only what's new on trie
since the past merge...

Sorry, I think git revert is not good for undoing a merge commit. It
does undo the code changes, but it leaves the merge in the history and
so future merges with the same branch think the branch was already

I don't know if this can be done in another way, but for now I'm going
to reset master to the commit just before the merge (7e69be).
I'll send a message on sr-dev after I do it and then you could retry
 the merge from the beginning.
