More FreeBSD repo oddities - commits as root

One other oddity that came up during git conversion experimentation is
that there were a number of commits in 1993 (in CVS) done as root.

For the git migration I don't think we want to do anything special
with these - just leave them as root, as we did in svn. If any folks
who were involved in 1993 know who did this work it would be
interesting to note it, but I can't imagine it's worth trying to
revise the history.
