It's not, but given the low traffic, never mind that for this patch.

Thanks for the patch, but I have two nits:

- The patch doesn't apply cleanly with `git am'.  Please check again.

- I would prefer a massively reduced patch size, by *not* changing
  indentation on otherwise unaffected lines.

  I.e., ignore the problem here:

       {"dynamicbase",  optional_argument, NULL, 'd'},
    +  {"high-entropy-va", optional_argument, NULL, 'e'},

  ...and just add 

     "  -d, --dynamicbase  [BOOL]   Image base address may be relocated using\n"
    +"  -e,
    +   --high-entropy-va  [BOOL]   Image is compatible with 64-bit address space\n"
    +"                              layout randomization (ASLR).\n"

With that change I'll apply it and release a new version of rebase soon.

Oh and, btw., there's some problem with DMARC munging with your email
address.  Would you mind to attach the git patch instead of inlining
it?  I won't accidentally forget to fix your email address in the log
message then :-P
