  Before this patch and when the rebase involved the working copy parent
  (and thus the working copy too), we would not do in-memory rebase even
  if requested to. The in-code comment explains that the reason had
  something to do with avoiding an extra update, but I don't know which
  update that refers to. Perhaps an earlier version of the code used to
  update to the destination before rebasing even if in-memory rebase was
  requested? That seems to not be done at least since
  (rebase: do not bail on uncomitted changes if rebasing in-memory,
  To see if this still made it slower, I create a single tiny commit on
  top of one branch of the mozilla-unified repo (commit a1098c82 to be
  exact) and rebased it to another branch (commit d4e9a7be). Before this
  patch that took 11.8s and after this patch it took 8.6s (I only did
  two runs each, but the timings were very consistent).
