This is a non-fast forwarding push; i.e., it has the same end patch as
the destination, which is the "non-fast forward" part. I hit this
problem several times at work.
It's blocked since there's no way for git to go through the list of all
commits on both your repo and the remote repo to make sure that your
push isn't eliminating some historical patch in the remote. That's why
it's blocked by default.
