Generating ChangeLog from git

I have found git commands for generating reasonably formatted GNU
style ChangeLogs. I don't seem to be able to make them print the changes
from when 4.10 branched until now.

This appears to be a combination of git rev-list to get the hash where
the branch happened and git log. The git rev-list is giving me gits.

Basically a ChangeLog needs to be between two points and I can't
figure out how to (a) determine the two points in git and (b) specify
them to git log.

Any advice?
