First, please don't top post. Looking at this message you can see why it
really doesn't make sense. :-)

Now, in short, to run a git bisection:

(1) clone the Linus' tree (see http://linux.yyz.us/git-howto.html#download_first_time)
(2) from within the kernel source code directory downloaded in (1) run
$ git bisect start
$ git bisect bad
(this will mark the last revision as a failing one)
(3) If you have already verified that 2.6.24 works correctly, run
$ git bisect good v2.6.24
(this will mark the 2.6.24 kernel as a good one)
(4) as a result of this, git will select a kernel revision between 2.6.24 and
the most recent one for testing. Compile it, install it and check if it
works. If it does, run
$ git bisect good
Otherwise, run
$ git bisect bad
(5) repeat (4) until there's no more revisions to test.

If you encounter any problems, please ask what to do next.

Thanks,
Rafael
