Sorry, I prefer to branch for bugfix releases instead (if needed) - So
that master is always where development is happening.

Just create a local branch from the 2009.11 tag:

git checkout -b mybranch 2009.11

No they didn't. Linus' tree doesn't have branches, and stable (bugfix)
releases are done from a completely different tree.
