Not adding your own tags, but Linus's tags are missing from the ia64
tree.  For some reason, just copying .git/refs/tags from the torvalds
git tree does not work, git-branch complains about invalid objects.  I
thought that tags were portable between trees with common ancestors.

  cp -a linux-2.6/.git/refs/tags/* linux-2.6-ia64/.git/refs/tags/
