The opposite of https://visualstudio.uservoice.com/forums/330519-team-services/suggestions/6073200-no-fastforward-merge-from-pullrequest really.

We'd like an option to allow fast-forward merges for Pull Requests (and even one step further, to automatically rebase the pull request off the destination branch).

We end up merging small changes via Pull Requests (due to branch policies) and this can lead to the number of merge commits getting in the way of the actual commits for no real reason. Our developers rebase off master before creating the PR, so 90% of the time the merge will happily fast forward.

We'd accept it falling back to a merge commit if other changes had been made since then
