    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.
