right, see my reply to Peter on this, copy-paste error of mine. Should
have been.

git reset --hard 3239677c40b6e15d1bb49675cabb077460333538

I tried it out now by the way, if you do it the way I suggested you will
need to deal with 4 merge conflicts as well. Probably caused by the
intermittent hotfix in SVN history. You may prefer the approach Peter
suggested instead as it leaves your bad merge commit in the history of
the master branch if you so prefer.

Note removing commits in master branch may be bad if the boost super
project references it, to keep it in the history of the master branch is
one way of avoiding that.
