You are going to bisect the wrong tree. Looks like you don't have the
stable git tree:

# git clone --reference linux-2.6 git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/stable/linux-2.6.35.y.git
# cd linux-2.6.35.y
# git bisect start
# git bisect good v2.6.35.1
# git bisect bad v2.6.35.2

'linux-2.6' would be your local clone of Linus' upstream git tree. That way
git will only pull a couple of megs instead of several hundred megs.
