This won't do what you want.  What you want is something more like:

$ git clone git://
$ git remote add linux-next git://
$ git fetch linux-next
$ git fetch --tags linux-next

which will leave you a linux-next tree that you can update.

> $ git pull

This will *not* work on linux-next.  Once you build the tree as above,
you want to use 'git remote update' instead of pull.
